MOSCOW, June 21 (RAPSI) – The Supreme Court of Russia has dismissed an appeal filed by Uber Technolodgy, a Russian firm operating under Uber brand, against a 100,000 rubles ($1,785) fine for misleading consumers as to who actual carriers are, the court’s ruling reads on Wednesday.

The Supreme Court upheld the ruling of a lower court.

Earlier, Uber Technology has filed an appeal with the Moscow Commercial Court against Moscow Department of Russia’s consumer rights watchdog (Rospotrebnadzor). The court dismissed the appeal on September 1, 2016, and that ruling was later upheld by higher courts.

Rospotrebnadzor believes that a consumer gets an impression that the transportation service is provided by Uber company but in fact this service is provided by Uber’s partner-drivers. Consumers are not informed about the results of medical examination and licensing of taxi drives as well as consumer qualities of transfer service.

The service states that during the registration on website consumers may create accounts without learning about conditions and privacy policy and as a result they may not know all conditions of service provided.
