With respect to Snapchat social media, we read the following clause for people living outside the United States: „To use Snapchat or any of our products or services referring to these conditions, you must have agreed to our terms of use and privacy policies that will be posted to you at the first opening of the app and (ii) if we make substantial changes to the terms or policy of privacy. Of course, if you don`t accept them, don`t use the services.¬†Both Facebook and Snapchat do not accurately indicate minimal communication, if at all, if it refers to a unilateral change in conditions. THE GUA can be used and operated with MRC and Market Reform Contract Endorsement (MRCE) standards, but it can also be used with any other form of underpants or endore or with electronic agreements. It is advisable (if possible) to ensure that your business agreements are available in writing in order to avoid any problems when trying to prove a contract. Written contracts may consist of a standard agreement or a letter of confirmation of the agreement. Restrictions on payment contracts and the content of a delivery must be taken into account when amending single contracts. At the end of a fixed-term contract, a company can of course offer the consumer a new contract with new conditions. The continuation of liability insurance and certain types of life insurance allows this to be done at the beginning of a new period of insurance. In its decision of 1991:12 Marktgericht took a position on the provisions relating to the changes made by an insurance company.

The Court of Justice prohibited the application of a provision relating to the continuation of voluntary consumer insurance, which granted the insurance company the indeterminate and unlimited right to unilaterally change the contractual terms in a manner detrimental to the consumer. A clause whose purpose or effect is to reserve the right of the tradesman to unilaterally change the terms of the contract with respect to its duration, the characteristics or price of the service to be provided are abusive and are therefore considered unwritten. A contract may also require that the professional be able to unilaterally make changes to the contract related to technological developments if these changes do not include an increase in prices, a deterioration in quality and the characteristics on which the consumer has committed. This last exception allows the needs of technological developments to be taken into account. Treaty change is allowed as long as it does not change the legitimate confidence of the consumer (see also the example of the implementation of the European directive, French consumer code, Article R 212-4). When a company and a consumer enter into a contract, it is binding on both parties. Both parties must meet contractual obligations. Neither party may unilaterally change the contract, except in exceptional cases. As a general rule, the amendments must be approved by both parties. As always, there are exceptions to the rule. For example, the law requires that certain types of contracts be entered into in writing.

Derogations from these contracts must therefore also be made in writing. Examples include contracts for the sale of land, the transfer of a contract, guarantees and the transfer of intellectual property rights.
