A clickwrap, or clickthrough agreement, is a prompt that offers individuals the opportunity to accept or decline a digitally-mediated policy. For example, a clickwrap can be used to require visitors to accept a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), Terms of Service (ToS), or other policy. Visitors to your site must click to agree with your policy prior to accessing your site. Clickwraps can be associated with Share Links, Inboxes, and the user registration process. You can configure multiple clickwraps for use in different areas of your Site.
Site administrators can create new Clickwraps. Navigate to the Sharing Settings page by typing "Clickwraps" in the search box at the top of the screen and choosing the matching result. Scroll down, then click Add new Clickwrap. Provide the required settings for Name and Body, indicate when the Clickwrap is available, and click Save.
The Name setting is for your reference, and will appear only in a list of Clickwraps; the Name is never displayed when a person is prompted to agree to the Clickwrap. The Body is for the full text of your policy, and all of the text you enter in the Body will be displayed to people during the prompt. You may use Markdown for text formatting, but HTML tags are not allowed.
The Require new users to acknowledge this document setting is used to support a workflow where users set their own passwords, either because of a user account request, or because a site administrator configured a new user account with the Email signup authentication type.
