Meaningless means there's a strong limit to how much I can mess up!

I read most of them. Unfortunately, there was no box for "I accept most of the rules but not all of them", so I ticked the "I accept" box.

Let me state, categorically, this however. First, a caveat:

I AM NOT A LITIGIOUS PERSON. WHEN I HAVE BEEN CHEATED OUT OF MONEY, WHICH HAS HAPPENED TO ME, I HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO RESORT TO COURT ACTION. AND I CANNOT IMAGINE ANY SCENARIO IN WHICH I WOULD CHOOSE TO SUE BOARDGAMEGEEK.

HOWEVER, I DO NOT WAIVE ANY RIGHTS TO THE COURT SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES OR OF ANY OTHER COUNTRY UNDER WHOSE JURISDICTION I MAY RESIDE.

That's an 'official' statement on my part. If, in the extremely unlikely event that I find it necessary to engage in legal action (i.e., if pigs begin to sprout wings and fly, or if science ever proves that God does not exist), I will invoke the above disclaimer!

I didn't read the GPDR/Privacy statement stuff. I've already been sent a lot of updates on that from various companies and had to undergo GPDR training at work.

The stuff about waiving rights to jury trials, class action lawsuits and such stood out more than the GPDR stuff. Maybe that's more common that I realise because I would have missed those additions had they not been explicitly highlighted for my attention, but that all seemed a bit weird.

It is weird, but then so are EULAs. And while all this stuff may or may not stand up in the US, it doesn't elsewhere with very different legal structures and rules.

I haven't read it - best legal advice is actually not to do so - but if as reported then (a) no, it wouldn't hold up at all outside the US, but (b) as a general user of the site, there's pretty much no circumstance in which suing would be other than a waste of time and money due to plausible size of claim (for what?), legal costs, probable absence of any BGG assets outside the US, and more.

I see your GDPR and I raise you ITAR. Tends to affect companies rather than people, but it affects many, if not all, employees of those companies of whom I used to be one. And just knowing enough to get by - even if not involved directly in neither manufacture nor export - takes a lot longer than 30 seconds.
