Software companies often enter into specific agreements with large companies and public authorities, which include specially designed support contracts and guarantees. Notwithstanding the contrary provisions of the user agreement, you and we accept that if we amend this agreement in the future (with other ad addresses or an internet link provided here) this amendment does not apply to claims filed in legal proceedings against PayPal prior to the amendment coming into force. The amendment applies to all other disputes or claims settled by this Agreement, in order to ensure the mediation that has been or may arise between you and PayPal. We will inform you of the changes made to this agreement by publishing the amended terms on www.paypal.com www.paypal.com at least 30 days before the changes come into effect and by emailing them. If you do not accept these amended conditions, you can close your account PayPal within 30 days and you are not bound by the amended conditions. A common criticism of end-user licensing contracts is that they are often far too long for users to spend time reading them carefully. In March 2012, the PayPal end-user license agreement was 36,275 words and in May 2011, the iTunes agreement was 56 pages long.  The sources of information that reported these results stated that the vast majority of users do not read the documents because of their length. Many companies have parodied this belief that users do not read end-user licensing agreements by adding unusual clauses, knowing that few users will ever read them. As an April joke, Gamestation added a clause stating that users who placed an order on April 1, 2010 agreed to give their souls irrevocably to the company, which was accepted by 7,500 users.
