After getting a bit of a telling off from the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), Apple have agreed to revise their terms and conditions to make them clearer and fairer for consumers.
Identifying terms in Apple’s user agreement contracts which infringed upon the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulation 1999 (UTCCRs), Apple have agreed to revise the standard conditions to ensure these:
- do not exclude liability for faulty or mis-described goods
- are consistent with consumer rights under the Distance Selling Regulations
- are drafted in plain or intelligible language
- do not potentially allow changes to be made to products and prices after an agreement is made.
