    I wonder... do people actually take time to read a company's Terms and Conditions before they agree to register/order/etc to their services?

    To tell the truth, i never do... [​IMG] But in some cases if i find the website to be dodgy i would made an exception.

    What do you do?

    I voted yes and no because sometimes I read it for a specific part. Usually no though.

    I read every single one of them, installing Windows XP took me about 5 and a half hours, I keep wondering how my friend did it in 45 minutes. [​IMG]

    I have read the TOS for almost everything basic atleast once. Meaning I read a Yahoo Game TOS once even though I have more than one of there games. I read a gaming Forum TOS once, I dont need to read everyword of every gaming forum again. They're all practically the same. I did read GBATemp but theres isn't long really and I read fast.

    I voted yes.

    No. I think common sense is often enough to keep you safe on a forum.

    This poll allows me to vote yes and no.

    Very logical

    I'm too young to be scammed into anything. Once I turn 18 and get a credit card, I'll be sure to read all my contracts for the terms and conditions.

    I just skip to the end and click Agree. I have to skip to the end because some sites force you to, to make it look like you read.

    I voted yes and no.

    Mostly I don't pay much attention unless it's like a company giving freebies or competitions where I try to find the catch or basically things that seem too good to be true.

    Usually don't read them except small fishy sites.

    But when terms and conditions change, I make sure I read them.
    (Like I read the PSN T&C when it changed so my wallet and purchased games don't get harmed in any way =P)

    Same. Also, the poll is slightly illogical...

    same here.
    I voted yes, because I almost read them all on shoping site and where I give true personal information.
    I'm also reading information regarding insurance, delivery and refund process.

    I also read nintendo website sign-up condition, and I do not agree and never registered there.
    (they are giving personal data's to other companies and they are specifying "be aware that when your data will be on another country, your personnal privacy will means nothing to us")
    same as linking the Wii account to a nintendo account.
