Ik ben geen juridisch expert (al moet ik zeggen dat volgens mij de wetgeving nou ook weer niet zo ingewikkeld is dat je vier jaar gestudeerd moet hebben om het te kunnen begrijpen ;)), maar volgens mij stelt de Nederlandse wet wel enige beperkingen aan bepalingen uit de categorie "wij kunnen deze overeenkomst te allen tijde eenzijdig wijzigen". Niet dat ik verwacht dat Cyan onredelijke wijzigingen zal doorvoeren, maar het is in elk geval goed om te weten. :)

Oh ja, en het aanklikken van een vakje is volgens mij geen rechtsgeldige ondertekening. Maar dat zou ook weer betekenen dat je het spel dus niet mag spelen, dus dat zijn van die dingen die meestal voor het gemak genegeerd worden (en er bestaat ook nog zoiets als algemene voorwaarden om het helemaal ingewikkeld te maken). ;)
