It was a line of source code whether BirfoonBoy admits it or not. That's what source code is, lines of code.<quoted text>
Give it up, Mr. 6 Year Old in wet diapers. Damn, I forgot about your age, no wonder you couldn't grasp the point being made by Mr. Barton. I never said it was a line of source code, you did. I said the clause was hidden in the code, not part of the code, DAB! When you click "agree" you can no longer expect any reasonable privacy of your personal information. It's very simple, well, for most people anyway.
The terms and conditions which govern are stated in the terms and conditions statement shown to the user, not in the source code.
When the user clicks "I agree' he is agreeing to the terms and conditions stated in the terms and conditions agreement.
The claim that the user is bound to hidden text in source code is contrary to law in the real world, but not PLAY LAW.
Similarly, when you sign a written contract, the other party cannot pull out a card from his wallet with a "hidden clause" and say you are bound to it.
Grow up little boy and join the real world.
If you believe a line of source code that is not included in the agreement presented to the user constitutes a waiver of rights under HIPAA or grants the government the right to ignore HIPAA non-disclosure requirements you are welcome to show where in the articles that rabbit is pulled out of the hat.
BirfoonBoy, when presented with the challenge of rationally connecting the line of source code to actual waiver of rights can only mumble "read the articles". That's what happens when you're a PLAY JUSTICE.
