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.
