Gift Certificates Limited

CK - Washington.   Gift certificates sold on Amazon websites in Germany may not contain a binding forfeiture date, the Munich court of appeals determined in a decision now published at the Dr. Damm website. The January 17, 2008 ruling in the matter 29 U 3193/07 stresses the voidness of such time constraints. The court enjoined the use of terms and conditions that so limit the validity of gift certificates, subject to a civil fine of up to €250,000 for future violations.
