Nothing Agreement

“This agreement. represents the entire agreement and understanding between you and us. This Agreement supersedes all prior commitments, agreements, assurances, commitments or implications, whether entered into orally or in writing between you and us regarding the subject matter of this Agreement…¬†AXA has appointed representatives to sell products under general retainer agreements containing a number of standard clauses. When terminating contracts, the question arose as to whether the entire contractual clause in any termination agreement was effective in excluding claims based on allegations: when drafting entire contractual clauses, the parties had to take into account the following: the parties accepted that the entire contractual clause was effective in excluding rights under guarantees. However, the parties disagreed on the effectiveness of the clause in excluding claims based on misrepresentation and implied conditions. The Court of Appeal decided that a well-developed comprehensive contractual clause should include a number of elements: (a) the entire statement of agreement itself; (b) formulations that exclude the liability of pre-contractual representations (which was the subject of the AXA case); and (c) confirmation that there is no exclusion for fraudulent misrepresentation. The question of whether entire contractual clauses allow the parties to exclude claims based on misrepresentation and/or implied conditions has been the subject of much dispute. However, a recent court of appeal, AXA Sun Life vs. Campbell Martin, provided useful guidance for formulating such clauses to ensure that no implied terms or pre-contractual negotiations are construed as part of the contract. The AXA case highlights the need for careful drafting. Entire contractual clauses should not be considered standard provisions, since the meaning of a particular contractual term depends on the words well used and the context of the agreement.

The main purpose of a comprehensive contractual clause in a contract is to limit the rights and obligations of the parties to the provisions of the agreement. They exclude any liability for pre-contractual statements made by one of the parties to the other before signing on the dotted line (unless such statements are expressly repeated in the agreement). – Is this group safe and welcoming for Blacks, Indigenous and other People of Color, members with disabilities, members of LTBTQI+ and other different crossroads, both as members and administrators?

Below are some of the questions we`ve been working on while trying to improve the impact of the Buy Nothing project. At the end of 2019, an equity team was created to study this objective. The Buy Nothing Equity team is led by DiDi Delgado, a local buy Nothing Project leader in New York. DiDi is an author, international activist and anti-racist educator from Boston, MA. The team is also led by Katherine Valenzuela Parsons, who is a member of the Buy Nothing Global team and an anti-racist lawyer originally from Texas, but now leads a local Buy Nothing group in central Virginia. Daria Kelsey of Tacoma, WA, who is also a member of the Buy Nothing Global team, later joined as equity team lead to help with the enormous efforts required for this difficult work. . . .
