Apparently, not very many of us actually bother to read those long, boring “Terms & Conditions” on websites. A new survey from FindLaw says most of us either skim through or completely ignore all that legal mumbo-jumbo and just go ahead and click “Complete Purchase.” The problem is, the buyer is agreeing to the terms set out by the ecommerce website. That can frequently involve waiving legal rights to sue the website in the event of a dispute. Many websites include mandatory arbitration clauses within their terms and conditions. And courts have generally upheld the enforceability of those clauses, whether or not the buyer actually takes the time to read and understand them.
