    A lot of things you sign up for on the internet have a clause in the conditions something like this:

    xxx reserves the right to modify this agreement at any time, without notice. It is your responsibility to review this agreement regularly and terminate your subscription if you disagree with any of the changes. Continuing to use xxx upon any change of this agreement will imply your agreement with that change.
    Of course nobody ever does review conditions for every little thing regularly even if they could remember where to find them, so what if they added a clause saying you agree to give them your life savings or their directors could shag your daughter/wife on demand, would it be legal? I suspect not in English law. Has it ever been tested?

    Not sure if any Internet Ts & Cs have been tested, but there's plenty of history of unreasonable Ts & Cs being overturned, usually ones hidden away in the small print.

    There's also quite a chunk of Ts & Cs that despite common usage are totally unenforceable, including those that supposedly 'benefit the consumer' despite providing less protection than statutory rights, which obviously can not be waived.

    I would provide some links to interesting cases, but as it's Friday afternoon I cba'd.

    I never read those conditions anyway. I've probably been sold into slavery ten times over already, but nobody has come to collect me yet ..
