Terms-less Terms of Use

Today I came across the most useless terms of use statement I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of them. I try to make it a habit of reading terms, licenses and agreements whenever I come across them. As a practicing Privacy Professional I feel obligated to review them, and occasionally I’ll even learn something along the way. So imagine my surprise when I came across this:

These Terms of Use set forth the terms and restrictions regarding the use of the Logical Security, Inc. (“Logical Security”) web site (www.logicalsecurity.com), by you, a user of logicalsecurity.com, and the entity you represent (hereinafter collectively “you” or “your”). By using logicalsecurity.com in any manner, you agree to all terms and conditions contained or referenced in these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use apply only to your use of logicalsecurity.com and do not change or alter any other agreement between you and Logical Security.

Logical Security reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify or change these Terms of Use at any time without prior notice to you. You should visit this page periodically to review the current Terms of Use. Your continued use of logicalsecurity.com following the posting of any changes to the Terms of Use constitutes acceptance of those changes.

If at anytime you do not agree with these Terms of Use, your sole recourse is to not use, or stop using, logicalsecurity.com.

I read it no less that three times before I would believe that it actually says absolutely nothing, but it does (or doesn’t). Someone wrote three paragraphs to say nothing. Why include this? The worst part about it is that it is on a site that offers security training. They should know better! Maybe there is some hidden secret message I’m missing.
