If you’re a fan of South Park (and they’ve not found a way to offend you too) then the consequences of not reading the terms of conditions of anything you get into are perhaps not as severe as having someone like the late Steve Jobs sowing you to the behind of someone else who didn’t care to read their Ts & Cs to make a human centipede, but you really ought to read them. I know nobody does, but really, you need to read the terms and conditions even if they’re those notoriously long ones which are attached to an online platform you might be seeking to use or a piece of software.
The reason you need to read them is so that you know exactly what to expect should something go wrong, which admittedly it rarely does. That long text forms part of a legally binding contract which you agree to if you continue using that platform or software, so it’s in your best interests to at least read through them and make sure you get a general understanding. I know as we all are, you’re eager to get on with using whatever it is which is associated with those terms and conditions, but you’ll really only need to read them over just once.
Any amendments made to the original terms and conditions will be delivered to you in bite-sized pieces which probably won’t take you all of two minutes to go over, but as for the original terms and conditions you will only be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t at least read through them to get a general feel for what they’re all about.
Besides, the developers of these platforms which you’re willed to use go out of their way to make their terms and conditions easily comprehendible, or as easily comprehendible as is within reason, so it’s not like you’ll have to look up some legal jargon every now and then in order to understand them properly.
While this is some advice I received from some car accident lawyers SLC residents often turn to in the event of needing legal advice and services associated with car accidents and injuries, as much as it seems unconnected even in the slightest of ways, it’s more connected than what anyone may think. For one, it basically just serves to highlight how law is all about the interpretation of the law, first of all, and secondly about how one applies this law in favour of their own case.
So it’s basically about what you can prove, but sometimes issues such as technicalities come into play to swing the outcome in your favour or the other way. So something as seemingly insignificant as having read the terms and conditions of whatever it is you’re getting yourself into demonstrates the type of astuteness which at the very least gives you some credibility, even if and especially in your own case.
It’s about getting the formalities out of the way so that your bases are covered in this way. The last thing you want is for your car accident case to be dismissed on some stupid grounds like those of your internet history as per the data collection Ts & Cs of a site you use proving you to have been somewhere other than where you claimed to be at the time of the accident, for example.
