Clickwraps_for_Business_Contracts.pngOver the last year, we have been following cases of companies such as Dick’s Sporting Goods, Barnes & Noble, and Proflowers.com for posting their website terms online via hyperlink. Attempting to enforce a website’s terms of use this way is called a browsewrap agreement. The enforceability of passive browsewraps has been a toss up for a while and continues to fade. Clickwrap agreements are so much more verifiable. It’s a mystery why more companies aren’t using them within their websites and apps.
If “
clickwrap agreement” sounds foreign, it’s only because not many know that executing one of these agreements has a name. Internet users execute these agreements daily when signing into an online service, quickly checking out on an e-commerce site, or clicking a box verifying, “Yes, I agree.” There are many opportunities for intentional usage of clickwraps that it’s time take advantage of.

Whether online, in-apps, or through day-to-day business transactions, there are numerous ways to use clickwraps for business contracts.

All businesses, not to mention HR, have to deal with forms for days.
