Reasons why to become a member

Why do we need you to become a member?
In order for Ius to be successful in its mission, it needs to count on the support of a large base of members, since they can help not only to identify the unlawful behavior of the companies but also to contribute with ideas for the improvement of consumer rights and representation. A larger number of members will allow Ius to be more acknowledgeable with the several public authorities, thus giving us the possibility to participate in specific initiatives designed to help protect consumers, for instances Ius can only legally act in other jurisdictions if it has a certain minimal number of members. In short, by becoming our member, you are already contributing to the protection of consumers rights in the European Union.

Why should you become a member?
Becoming an Ius Omnibus member is completely free way to help the protection of consumers rights in the European Union. Every year, hundreds of consumer protection infractions that affect consumers across the EU are detected, so, Ius’ goal is to end this illicit behavior and compensate the consumers that were harmed by them. By being our member, you will be kept informed of legal claims being brought by Ius and its developments, some of which can benefit you. You are also in a privileged position to present ideas and hel direct Ius’ action towards the issues it deems most important and which affect consumers most significantly.

What are we going to do with your personal information and why do we need it?
Your personal data is used exclusively to subscribe you to Ius’ mailing list, in order to keep you updated regarding the legal claims brought by us, to invite you to Ius Omnibus General Assembly Meetings, and to inform you about upcoming opportunities to protect and defend your rights as a consumer. We take very seriously the protection of your personal information. We will never trade it with another entity unless specifically authorized by you. Finally, we would like to emphasize that Ius will never ask you for money or sell you any type of product or service.

What do I do if I want to become a Ius Omnibus member but don’t have European citizenship or residency?
If you do not have European citizenship or residency you can still submit the membership form on this page. Ius Omnibus will give you the status of ‘Honorary Member’ instead of the status of ‘Member’ as set out in paragraph 1, article 6 of the Ius Omnibus Statues which you can also find on this website.
