unstar this property answer text <p>The Online Harms White Paper sets out our plans for world-leading legislation to make the UK the safest place in the world to be online. We intend to establish in law a new duty of care on companies towards their users, overseen by an independent regulator. The duty of care will ensure companies have appropriate systems and processes in place to deal with harmful content on their services to keep their users safe. Compliance with this duty of care will be overseen by an independent regulator, which will have a range of enforcement powers.</p><p> </p><p>Alongside the White Paper, the government published the Social Media Code of Practice. This voluntary guidance sets out actions that the Government believes social media platforms should take to prevent bullying, insulting, intimidating and humiliating behaviours on their sites.</p><p> </p><p>Government has also asked the Law Commission to conduct a second phase of its review of the legal framework around abusive and offensive communications online. This will make specific recommendations for legal reform and is due to report in early 2021. Alongside this, the Law Commission will also consider whether co-ordinated harassment by groups of people online could be more effectively dealt with by the criminal law.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government set up the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to protect consumers from the harm that can be caused by bad conduct in the financial services industry. In 2015, it also set up the world’s only Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) with a statutory objective to ensure that payment systems are operated in a way that takes account of users’ needs.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA is the UK’s competent authority for the Payment Services Regulations (PSRs) 2017. The PSRs aim to make payments safer and more secure and protect consumers. As set out in these regulations, if a payment transaction (be that a bank transfer or debit card payment) is not properly authorised by the customer, the customer’s bank or payment service provider must refund the amount of the transaction to the payer. For authorised payment scams, where the customer has authorised a bank transfer but the money has been paid to a fraudulent recipient, the PSR has brought together consumer representatives and banks to produce an industry code of conduct to address this issue. Launched in May 2019, the code sets out agreed principles for greater protection of consumers and the circumstances in which they will be reimbursed, marking a significant step in delivering improved protections for customers.</p><p> </p><p>Regarding debit card charges, the UK implemented the EU’s Interchange Fee Regulation in 2015 which introduced a cap on one of the key fees applicable to card payments. The European Commission is in the process of reviewing the effectiveness of this regulation as part of its usual process. The PSR, who is the UK’s lead competent authority for the Interchange Fee Regulation, is also conducting a review into the supply of card-acquiring services. Amongst other things, this review will examine the fees merchants pay for these services.</p><p> </p>The Government is open to hearing views on this issue, and digital payments more broadly, as evidenced by its Call for Evidence on Cash and Digital Payments in the New Economy.
