Browsewrap agreements aren't the only type of online legal agreement that could bring you trouble online.
Last Monday, we released Part I of our survey of the legal agreements found on the web's Top 1,000 sites -- recapping how browsewrap-style, terms-of-service links are often hidden at the bottom of the page. Today, we'll move on to the issues presented by clickwrap-style agreements -- and how those are being managed by the companies sit at the top of traffic rankings.
Wait, before we get going, can you remind me of what exists in a clickwrap agreement?
Clickwrap agreements prompt you to do something to actively agree to a given set of online legal terms. This might be by checking a box or clicking an "I AGREE" box during the sign-up process. If you've purchased something online, chances are you've come across one of these at some point, usually at either an initial registration or during the checkout process.
Okay, so are top sites on the web following this following this protocol?
