1. The choice of the right to be applied to the contract, to which the individual is a party, who uses, acquires or orders or intends to use, purchase or order movable things (works, services) for personal, family, household and other needs not related to the implementation activity, cannot entail deprivation of such an individual (consumer) of protection of his rights, provided by the mandatory rules of the law of the country of residence of the consumer, if at least one of the following circumstances: 1) the conclusion of the contract was preceded by an offer in this country, addressed to the consumer, or an advertisement, and the consumer made the necessary actions in the same country to conclude a contract; 2) the counterparty of the consumer or the representative of the counterparty received the order of the consumer in this country; 3) an order for the purchase of movables, the performance of work or the provision of services is made by a consumer in another country, a visit to which was initiated by the consumer’s counterparty in order to encourage the consumer to enter into a contract. 2. In the absence of an agreement of the parties on the law to be applied and in the circumstances specified in paragraph 1 of this article, the law of the country of residence of the consumer shall apply to the contract with the participation of the consumer. 3. The rules established by clauses 1 and 2 of this article do not apply: 1) to the contract of carriage; 2) to the contract on the performance of work or the provision of services, if the work must be performed or the services must be rendered exclusively in a country other than the country of residence of the consumer.
