I was just wondering, how many people read terms and conditions from beginning to the end when buying a product or when downloading an application
Two to three pages of tiny type? No way. Sometimes I scan the section headings, the sections that appear most relevant to me..
I scan through. Mostly I am looking to see if any unwanted software will be installed automatically if I agree. I've had that happen a few times and now I'm more cautious.
Nope. I rarely even look at the terms. I just hunt for the button that says I've read them, and click it. I could be signing away my soul for all I know.
I also run a business online, and I have terms and conditions on my digital products. I know from the emails I receive that very few people read them. In fact, they rarely read product descriptions, which really blows my mind! They just look at the title, and the price, and buy it.
I think, I have read almost. It is too lengthy to read terms and conditions because there is a long page with many numbers of conditions. But I have done this task.
I guess all those producers intentionally make it really long so that people will just scroll down to agree. I can't imagine reading a note for more than an hour when I would only understand less than 60% of everything
Entirely at the mercy I hardly read. Thanks for making a point.
There is a documentary out about terms and conditions. We watched it recently, and it estimated the number of hours it would take to read all of the terms and conditions that you encounter. t was a ridiculous amount of time. But it was scary because of so many things we give up (privacy, etc.) so we can use a particular program.
I'm pretty sure I'm one of the only site members here who has more than a passing familiarity with the HubPages TOS.
My favorite part is explaining to people how by signing up for the site, they have automatically agreed that they have read, understood and accepted the entire TOS.
I skim through them before I sign up just to make sure there aren't any hidden charges as well as privacy and copyright concerns. If a problem or question occurs, I go back and search them more thoroughly to see if there's an answer or explanation.
I agree, TOS are waaaay too long for most people.
I tend to skim them to spot any I object to, or that are non standard. It is rare that I find any. However I was taught that you should always read them, I rather suspect most of us do not!
I don't to be honest - but that doesn't mean I haven't tried. After a while they all blend into one! And some are so long by the time I get to the bottom I have no idea what I read at the top!! Bad show for me
I rarely read terms and conditions when I sign up for something, unless I suspect something dodgy. Far too lazy. I tend to gradually familiarise myself with the terms and conditions of services I use over a longer period as and when I need to know certain things. After four years, I'm now pretty familiar with the HP TOS, for example.
