Commerce Commission’s Guide to businesses on unfair contract terms

The Commerce Commission has released yesterday on its website a Business guide to Unfair Contract Terms, aimed at raising awareness amongst businesses on their obligations under the unfair contract terms provisions of the Fair Trading Act.

Several quick guides and videos are available online. They address topics such as variation of the contract, cancellation, subscription and automatic rollovers, and tips for writing terms and conditions. While the animations are primarily addressed to businesses, we expect that consumers will also find these a useful resource.
