What other rights do I have?

Whether or not the seller used unfair practices, you may have other rights and protections depending on the type of agreement. For example, for some types of agreements there is a “cooling-off” period of a few days when you can change your mind for any reason and cancel the agreement.

Some types of agreements have special rules sellers must follow. For example, the seller might have to give you certain information before making the agreement, or they might have to give you a written contract. Sometimes you have a right to cancel the contract if the seller does not follow all the rules.
