Cancellation of an Electronic Contract Under French Law

As a general principle applicable to any kind of agreement under French law (including electronic contract), a contract that is cancelled ceases to have effect for the future. Causes for cancellation are numerous. For instance, an international contract might be cancelled because French public order (“ordre public”) is violated. In the context of electronic commerce, the cancellation of a contract also frequently results from the non-compliance with consumer protection laws.
