General Terms and Conditions

General Terms and Conditions are preformulated conditions for a variety of contracts that one contracting party (user) imposes on the other party when entering into a contract. They are used for example to simplify business processes, to fill gaps of the law and to strengthen user rights. General Terms and Conditions are often part of a contract even if the other party has not taken note of their contents.
In order to avoid any undue disadvantage of the other party, German and European regulations are placing strict demands on the wording and contents of General Terms and Conditions. This is especially true where a business uses General Terms and Conditions that apply to consumers. These provisions are specified in detail by an increasing number of court decisions.
