This research discusses the information technology-based financing implemented by sharia financing company (PT Ammana Fintek Syariah). Information technology-based financing services on the one hand provide benefits as an alternative financing for consumers and MSME entrepreneurs, but on the other hand, they contain high risks considering that financing providers and financing recipients do not know each other and have never met. The study aims to examine legal protection principles and risk mitigation for consumers in peer-to-peer lending based on Sharia Law and Indonesian legislation. This research will analyze those problems by applying normative-juridical and qualitative research methods. This study found that the standard contract made unilaterally by the financial technology company does not protect consumer rights. The Indonesian Financial Services Authority Regulation No. 77/POJK.01/2016 regarding Information Technology-Based Lending Service is not sufficient as a legal basis of customer protection. The regulation contains many weaknesses, such as it does not regulate on sharia peer-to-peer lending. It creates a legal vacuum and legal uncertainty to Muslim consumers. Therefore, POJK No. 77/POJK.01/2016 has to be amended to accommodate the interest of Muslim consumers and this sharia financial technology company.
