click-wrap license

n.ComputingAn agreement granting conditions and terms of use, displayed during program installation or initiation, and acknowledged and agreed to by clicking a button.


Failure or refusal to accept the conditions in a click-wrap license usually prevents the user from installing or accessing the program. The phrase is a derivation of shrink-wrap license, where the physical act of breaking a seal or the cellophane on the package indicates consent to the conditions and terms.
