Do you usually read the "Terms of Service" before signing up for something, or just click the Accept button and move on?

I could be signing away my life for all I care. I'm not reading that unnecessary novel.

It's just the same general crap every time, so why bother? And if we ever truly have any doubts about policies and stuff, there's usually a link to the TOS somewhere on the website of whatever site is in question.

Do you "usually" read the agreements when you sign up for something that you must accept in order to use the service? They tend to be like 50 pages long.

Or we read them more frequently than you.

Mind showing me the study? Btw, remember that of us 9%, we don't necessarily read EVERY single one we come across (the question was worded to allow that it appears).

9% of you live very boring lives. A recent study showed that if you actually read all of the terms of service that you encounter on a daily basis it adds up to about 30 days per year. So you lose a month of your life every year that you read that nonsense!

It's impossible to read and comprehend every one, without a team of attorneys. Once you had attorneys help you will have many changes to the agreement that it will take months to finalize even with the company's help, which won't be east. Tos is simply an ineffective way to apply legal agreements.

Nope, if its a big enough change i.e. Instagram, it'll make the news and I won't have to waste time reading the ToS.

But so I know for future reference, can you see it (the smiley), or does it just show up as a box or something like that?

My personal legal team and I intensely sift through every clause of such agreements.

I'm a very personally responsible objectivist citizen you see.

No. There's really no point, because you can't use what you want to use if you don't agree. I know I probably should read them, but I think I'm just lazy.
