"Provider of service" means a person who contracts with consumers to provide an electronic commercial service. [CC § 1789.7(c)]


"Goods and services" include tangible items or physical services, or tickets or vouchers for tangible items or physical services, but do not include computerized data delivered to a consumer via a computer terminal or in printed form. [CC § 1789.2(d)]
