14 Feb Are Those Online Agreements Enforceable?
To answer the question in a very lawyerly way…It all depends.
This post from Business Law Post talks about the different kinds of online form contracts as well as how enforceable they may be. The threshold question, which is quite important, is whether a contract was actually intended to be formed.

So how the contracts are presented to consumers is just as important as how the contracts are worded.
Business owners who have online operations should understand how online contracts work so that they don’t end up on the wrong side of a transaction or worse, the wrong side of a law suit.
