Do you read the terms and conditions or just click the yes button and complete the signing up process, I never read those, I had only read once while I was signing up for my first email id. how many of you do religiously read those.

Ha ha. I don't think anyone reads this stuff. I think that people who write terms and conditions probably just make up stuff and put it in the middle of the terms and conditions. I don't think they even intend for anyone to actually read them. I guess the only danger would be if you were accidently signing your soul over to the devil or something.

I know that I should probably always be reading the terms and conditions before signing up for new sites but I really don't do it very often at all. I sort of skim them mostly. I think I pay a bit more attention to the privacy section because I don't want a site selling my information to an outside source. Who wants to have to deal with more spam right?

yeah you are right , I also do the same thing , it sounds very boring to go through the terms and conditions every time you sign in. Thanks for your response.

Hello there. Usually I will just scan through the terms and conditions. Most of the terms and conditions are very wordy and I am lazy to read them. There's a reason why many companies use small font sizes for their terms and conditions. They believe that most people do not read them so they put it small to save space. However, what the companies did not realize is that most people (like me) do not really read the terms and conditions because the wordings are too small. However, usually before I sign up for anything, I'll either read the FAQ or ask people about it first. I do not wish to give my information to a scam site.

yeah thats a good thing to do to get a public opinion before checking a site , it makes the job half done, and I also think that the companies reduce the font size to save space , as many people like me never do even scan through the terms. thanks for your response.
