El Majdoub v CarsOnTheWeb.Deutschland GmbH

European Union – Jurisdiction. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling, deciding that art 23(2) of the Brussels I Regulation should be interpreted as meaning that the method of accepting the general terms and conditions of a contract for sale by 'click-wrapping', concluded by electronic means, which contained an agreement conferring jurisdiction, constituted a communication by electronic means which provided a durable record of the agreement, within the meaning of that provision, where that method made it possible to print and save the text of those terms and conditions before the conclusion of the contract.
