The Internet is a main element of development of the information society, particularly in Europe, where it can help to remove national boundaries, and create a truly European economics and information society. The information society represents the most fundamental change in our life, with huge opportunities for all people. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) allow for new forms of partnership between companies, suppliers and consumers, improving the way they work and the products and services they offer. Electronic Commerce as a general concept covers any form of business transaction that is conducted electronically, using telecommunications and computer networks.
