Alternative dispute resolution is the possibility available to all consumers to turn to official entities that can help them resolve, or guide them through, a conflict. The Online Dispute Resolution website is an official website managed by the European Commission dedicated to helping consumers and traders resolve their disputes out of court:

Users who are defined as consumers by Law 144/2015 and who have entered into contracts of sale and purchase and / or provision of services have the right to appeal to official entities that will help them in the resolution of any conflict which has as its object such contracts, without prejudice to resorting to the Judicial Courts.
