A clickwrap agreement (also known as clickthrough, click-accept, or click-to-sign) is an online agreement that users agree to by clicking a button or checking a box that says “I agree.” Related agreement types include sign-in-wraps (where clicking “register” or “sign-in” constitutes acceptance to the terms) or browsewraps (where using the site indicates acceptance of terms), but clickwrap is the most commonly enforced.
Clickwrap agreements are often deployed to handle some of the most important agreements a business has: from terms of service hosted online within a site or app to high volume employee agreements. A clickwrap can be embedded on your website, presented via dedicated URL, or delivered by text and instant messages.
They are perfect for all agreement types, and are perfectly suited for improving business function and achieving departmental goals. The nature of these agreements demands a higher level of both scrutiny and security, making it imperative that businesses have a handle on not only how agreements are presented and accepted, but how to prove acceptance.

Legal is indeed the architect for legal agreements across the business, and should be responsible for publishing and updating the language of the agreements. Significantly, legal’s work trickles into every single department, as each department has agreements specific to its function and needs legal’s thumbs up to finalize the agreements.
Yet, legal can be a bottleneck to speed. In our current time, speed is important to everyone - sales, product/technical, HR, marketing, procurement, and channel. Which means clickwrap agreements can work for every department, especially when working with legal to craft unique and/or pre-approved terms.
