Confirmation: Different gift cards must be valid for more than three years
Vienna. Proofs must be valid for 30 years under current law, unless there are good reasons for reducing.
According to a complaint with the Verein for Consumenteninformation (VKI) Interspar, this was a feeling: The effectiveness of renewable gift cards to three years is not restricted, the Salzburg Regional Court has been ruled. There is no final review.
The VKI had been sued on behalf of the Social Affairs Ministry, since its gift card is not valid but "up to three years". But the shortest, the long-term in which it's a margin; lose its validity, "more likely, the justification must be," explains Joachim Kogelmann, a lawyer in the VKI. The Salzburg Regional Court was of the opinion that the three-year term of validity was "extremely unfair" and did not allow these security problems to reduce the three-year period.
Also, the following extension does not help, "the court is similar to the VKI that the average users of their credit solution will be held if the meaning of its charter is already in decline, "he says in the distribution of the VKI, Interspar has appealed to his opinion.
