25.3 Acceptance of an offer

25.3.5 When acceptance becomes effective

An acceptance becomes effective when:

  • Absent the offer specifying when the acceptance is effective, acceptance is effective when sent, if sent by reasonable means.
  • If an acceptance is sent by means that are not appropriate or reasonable under the circumstances or if it is improperly dispatched, the acceptance will be effective upon receipt.
  • In the case of option contracts, an acceptance is not effective until received by the supplier.
