The first known use is as a noun referring to a discussion between two parties about the terms of the contract. If you are concerned about misinterpretations, I suggest that you agree on a letter of amendment with the other parties. If the contract is signed, it only lists the local business name (what we would call a fictitious company name or a business name as the DBA name) and is only performed by mega`s employee/representative in that business name. There is no indication of Mega`s true identity anywhere in the contract performed. The contract is a contract of liability and contains repressive and unilateral provisions that guarantee, among other things, that Mega`s remedies are incorporated into the contract of adhesion to be self-executing and that the widower is subject to heavy clauses that allow the total loss of widower`s allowances, even if there is no substantial breach, liquidate the damages caused by mega`s widowhood (negligent, intentional, etc.) at $25, regardless of the actual harm suffered by the widower, and contains an arbitration clause that is misleading (very secure arbitration clause on the front of the contract, where widower signs, followed by a much more repressive arbitration clause in small print on the back of the contract, where the widower does not sign). . .
