Many online retailers receive a general terms and conditions warning, because errors in the general terms and conditions that can be penalised are technically easy to find and most online retailers commit quite typical violations here – which, however, can be easily avoided with reliable legal advice. If the retailers offers his goods and/or services in his own shop or on one of the sales platforms such as eBay, Amazon, etc., they are therefore dependent on legally secure formulations in the GTCs. The terms and conditions form the basis of the contract between buyer and seller, therefore, ineffective or incorrect clauses should be expressly avoided.
Typical errors in the GTCs
- Illegal limitation of liability clauses
- Stipulating the written form for amendments to the GTCs „...All contract amendments must be in written form...“
- Illegal restriction of the right of withdrawal
- Stipulating non-binding delivery times „...Delivery on request..“
