Bespoke General Terms and Conditions
The General Terms and Conditions (Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen, AGBs) are a set of pre-formulated standard clauses designed to make day-to-day business easier. There is no obligation to use these standard clauses. In some cases it can be advantageous to regulate internet transactions using bespoke general terms and conditions.
Under general terms and conditions liability can often be excluded or minimised. It can also be important to stipulate that the customer bears the cost of returning a product, should they decide to withdraw from a contract. A further classic area to consider regulating in the general terms and conditions is the retention of title. This can offer high security, in particular where products of high value are concerned. Additionally, it can be beneficial to include clause relating to jurisdiction in the case of a dispute.
The scope for general terms and conditions is almost limitless and depends very much on your business needs. We will be happy to advise you on the opportunities open to you and to develop bespoke general terms and conditions together with you.
