‘I Agreed To What?’ – Federal Court Decision May Increase Scrutiny Of Online Terms And Conditions

Seal of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York2016 | Septiembre 15
Can a consumer be bound by an arbitration agreement contained in online terms and conditions by merely signing in to an Internet-connected service? In a recent opinion that should strike a note of caution among businesses, a federal judge in New York held such an arbitration agreement unenforceable.

This decision should serve as a reminder to businesses operating online to ensure that consumers are given clear, conspicuous notice of online terms and conditions, an opportunity – and encouragement – to review those terms, and, where possible, a manner of actively assenting to the terms.
