Terms & Conditions: Read or Skip?

Do you want to have control over your personal data? Most probably, yes. But at what cost?

Being able to control requires extra effort. Most of us fail to take advantage of the control we already have when we click “I agree” without reading lengthy terms and conditions. Actually, more than 90% of us don’t read them (for younger people, ages 18-34, the rate is 97%, according to Deloitte study).

GDPR addresses the issue and sets specific requirements for a privacy notice: it shall be written in clear and plain language, presented in an easily accessible form, etc. It may increase the number of people reading the notice, but it doesn’t solve the problem completely.

Even if a privacy notice is presented in the clearest and shortest way possible, would you read it?
