Verbose Agreement

A scribe or detailed spokesperson indicates the detail or vocabulary (motality). One of the best-known examples of a radical simplification of agreements is the fruit-harvesting contract of South African Robert de Rooy.6 The challenge was that workers did not understand employment contracts. Since many of them didn`t come to read, he developed a comic-inspired technique. The concept of simple contracts and the benefits they enjoy are difficult to argue. Every company wants legal agreements that are easy to understand. Each company wants to spend less time negotiating and spending more time with the customer. Each company wants to spend less time managing its contracts and more time innovating. But the changes in every business are difficult, and radical changes — what it is — are almost impossible. Creating a strong model for simple contracts consumes time, resources and intellectually taxes your business based on years of habits.

CreditCards.com compared current credit card agreements with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) with those presented in 2011. At the time, GFPb called on credit card companies to simplify their agreements. At that time, the Agency also published an agreement on model maps, which was only two pages long. “Privacy policies” were first created when personal data became an essential feature of business models some 20 years ago. Early versions of websites – such as the then-popular Altavista search engine – focused on the privacy not only of visitors to the search engine itself, but also of website owners who appear in search results.

Altavista stressed that he knew nothing about the user and explained the role of cookies and how to opt out. Since then, data protection policies have been legalized from such largely factual statements to today either long, detailed and impenetrable, or vague and reassuring public relations exercises.
