Although the ABCs are not legally binding [which has not yet been reviewed in court], the violation of an ABC is often used as evidence in support of an anti-social behaviour application, the violation of which constitutes a criminal offence. The agreements not only invite children to sign that they will not perform the identified behaviour or behaviours, but that they realize that an offence may result in an ASBO application and that in the event of an ASBO violation, they may be sentenced to up to 5 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $2,000. Antisocial behaviour (ASBOs) is not appropriate in all cases of antisocial behaviour. Sometimes anyone can agree on a solution without going to court with an acceptable driving contract (sometimes known as the abc contract). This often happens where children and adolescents are involved, but it is an option for all. In such cases, an acceptable driving contract may be developed. Always provide links to your other key agreements. Combine your authorized use policies in a nearby location, such as your footnote or checkout screen, and, where possible, you will always obtain explicit consent to the directive. The agreements are usually aimed at 10 to 18 year olds, but can be used for all ages. Why should you connect to other agreements? Since customers should all agree before using your services, it`s helpful to have links in one place.
You will have a say in what goes into the agreement, instead of being informed by a court of what you can and cannot do. You want customers to understand that your authorized use policy is just one of the contracts they have to accept before making transactions with you. Therefore, use the Authorized Use Directive through your other agreements. Use everyday language as much as possible. This means that you can exercise greater discretion over what you deem harmful or unacceptable. Determine the territorial, governmental or national laws that apply to your contractual agreement. This means that you and your customers know what laws apply in the event of a dispute. An Acceptable Behaviour Contract (ABC) is a voluntary agreement between the person who behaves in an antisocial manner and others involved (.
