This Factsheet looks at unsolicited consumer agreements.
The Australian Consumer Law contains consumer protections relating to unsolicited sales practices, such as door-to-door sales and telemarketing.
Salespersons who contact you uninvited to offer an "unsolicited consumer agreement" have obligations around how and when they can approach you, what information they must give
you, and your "cooling-off" rights.
