Because of the similarity of the legal systems between Austria and Germany, the same is in principle true in Austria as in Germany. This means that in Austria too, users must see other end-user license agreements before the contract is concluded. The user accepts the terms of the EULA, for example by deleting the slide surrounding the packaging of the software, opening the product seal, sending an email to the software publisher, installing the application, running a downloadable file or simply using the application. The user may refuse to accept the contract by returning the software and being reimbursed the purchase price, or by clicking on do not accept it to confirm the terms of the EULA during installation. As part of the users` final license agreement, the Shrink Wrap and Click Wrap license terms are often removed. This is a common practice for concluding an SEA. In the case of the Shrink Wrap license, there is an inscription on the packaging that accepts the terms of the license as soon as the shell of the package is opened or the seal is broken. In the case of the Click Wrap license, the end customer must actively accept the license terms during installation or before the first startup of the program, in order to install and use the software. From a legal point of view, the types of approval and effectiveness of the Shrink Wrap- and Click Wrap licenses are questionable, given that the license terms will only be made available to the end customer after purchase. European Court of Justice: Privacy Shield is not valid There are many examples of non-compliance within an ITA. Often, the courts have to decide on the validity of certain provisions. Depending on the software, countries and specific specifications, the rules must be examined on a case-by-case basis and do not allow their validity to be generalized. The following examples may, in certain circumstances, be ineffective regulations of an end user license agreement: the end user license agreement defines how a user can use the software and what is allowed or prohibited.

Rules relating to the copying of the software or the dissemination of the programme are often included in the ITA. EuLA is a contract between the licensee (end customer) and the licensor (software publisher). EULA rules that violate current legislation are invalid and must not be respected, despite the agreement of the end customer. In the software environment, there are also EULA agreements that are not valid by direct confirmation, but for example by removing a film or packaging or breaking a seal.

Do you want to add a word, phrase or translation? Even if the license terms were agreed upon at the time of purchase (for example, when purchasing online through clearly visible ads before purchase or when purchasing in store, by clearly printing the full terms on the packaging), their effectiveness may be limited. They then constitute general conditions of sale subject to the control of the content by the regulations of the GTC . . . .
