What is also important is that these contracts are take it or leave it--do you want a cell phone? to use uber? to use google maps or alexa? to have your child be able to attend the bouncy castle birthday party? You cannot alter the digital agreement--you either click agree or abandon the effort completely. Contract law assumes some ability to negotiate the terms between the parties. Not to mention that businesses often get your digital signature on a key pad, where it's almost impossible to know what you're signing (until a dispute arises, that is).
