Beware of the legalities of shopping online

If you are like the thousands of consumers looking for Cyber Monday or Mobile Tuesday holiday deals, be careful when shopping online this year.  According to a survey by FindLaw, only 19% of buyers say they read every world of legal contracts even though the agreements in the contracts may be legally binding.  If you are shopping online be careful about shopping at websites without checking their reputations or at websites that are not secure.  Using public and shared computers to shop online can increase your risk of identity theft especially this time of year when thieves are looking for easy targets.
