The application of the general conditions of sale is important, especially when it comes to “restriction” and “exclusion” clauses that reduce the risks associated with the activity. For example, a volume-based device supplier will rarely be able to sell at competitive prices, unless their liability is contractually limited. Often, it is terms and conditions that achieve this goal, but even given their importance, the terms and conditions can often be overlooked by the parties as a simple “platform” or “legalese”. Similarly, many parties with competing terms and conditions may often not know what terms are actually contained in the final contracts. In this context, it is useful to reflect on how the courts envisage the application of the general conditions of sale. Contractual conditions are fundamental to the agreement. If the conditions of the contract are not met, it is possible to terminate the contract and claim damages. It is also an element of public policy at stake. Advertising cannot simply be removed. It would not be desirable for advertisers to be required to deliver when an order is placed for an advertised product. Even Amazon is at the end of its products. Products reach the end of their shelf life (and may in some cases not be sold due to illegality), and advertising may be shown on some sites that cannot be easily removed by the wholesaler or retailer from the “Boilerplate” standard form contracts, a number of “one size fits all” contractual clauses.
However, the term may also be closely related to conditions at the end of the contract that define the applicable legal provision, jurisdiction, assignment and transfer, waiver of jury proceedings, termination and escape clauses (“escape clauses”) such as the case of force majeure. Restrictive provisions contained in contracts where the consumer has little bargaining power (“membership contracts”) are examined by consumer protection. Unilateral treaties are less widespread, in which one side makes a promise, but the other does not promise anything. In these cases, the acceptance of the offer is not required to notify the supplier of its acceptance. In a reward contract, for example, a person who has lost a dog could promise a reward if the dog is found, by publication or orally. Payment could also depend on the live return of the dog. Those who learn the reward do not need to look for the dog, but if someone finds and delivers the dog, the promiser must pay. . . .
