Bitkom T&C template for Germany
A company’s Terms and Conditions (T&C) establish the basis of its day-to-day contractual transactions. This is always a balancing act to formulate a clause that is as favourable as possible for the user while at the same time satisfying the requirements of case law.
We offer you pre-formulated and provider-friendly general terms and conditions for your company. Simply select the appropriate modules, order and you're done!
The T&C have been drawn up by experts from the Bitkom working group “ICT Contract and Legal Development” and can be adopted as they are or else used as legal guidance in drawing up your own, individual terms and conditions.
