Click on the Dotted Line: Enforceability of "Click-Wrap" Agreements (Dec 2000)

August, 2002


The name “click-wrap agreement” describes contracts executed online without paper or physical signatures. Instead, one party proposes the terms, and the other simply “clicks” on a button indicating agreement. Typical uses of click-wrap agreements include establishing terms for the download and use of online services or software, or acknowledging a website’s terms of use.
