Terms of Service For E-Commerce Websites
Types of Terms of Service Agreements
Click Wrap Agreements: In order to manifest assent to the terms of the agreement, a website user must physically click a button that indicates their acceptance. Failure to do so will limit the user from being able to explore the website further or buy anything.
Scroll Wrap Agreements: In order to manifest assent to the terms of the agreement, a user must scroll through the entire agreement. Once the user has scrolled, and presumably read the entire agreement, they must click on a button that indicates their acceptance of the terms.
Browse Wrap Agreements: These type of agreements are among the most controversial. Such agreements do not require a user to engage in affirmative conduct to signify their assent to the websites terms. In essence, a user is considered to have assented to the terms simply by using the site. This only applies if a service agreement is posted somewhere that a reasonable person would know where to find it and would be likely to read it.
