This is more of a legal question but I couldn't find the "Legal" Q&A on StackExchange yet...maybe next week :)
I have a web app and mobile app where users sign up and create an account. I also have terms in which all users of my app are governed by.
My question is legally how do I have to ensure every user is actually governed by my terms.
I have seen both above methods used, any insight into the issue would be much appreciated.
Generally the best way to answer a question like this is to copy what a HUGE company (with a big legal department) does.
As far as I know, it's not been tested in court. If it ever is tested, it is likely that the common practice will be ineffective, and you will have to take more intrusive steps to ensure that people actually read your terms before accepting them.
I seem to see more and more of this especially with the bigger web companies.
