No Terms and Conditions on Java Uninstall Old Versions

    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows 7

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      On updating Java, I was offered an "Uninstall Older Versions" option. On this page there was a link to "Terms and Conditions". This link did not do anything.
      I was not able to read the T's & C's, but felt pressured into proceeding. I'm very aware that Java can be used by hackers to get into my computer.
      I had to proceed without knowledge of these terms and conditions. They may have contained a section in which I agree to you looking at all the information I hold on my computer. I don't know if they do.
      In a technological world where everybody accepts T's & C's without looking, I stand out as one who does not trust per se. I always read the T's & C's.
      If these are not made available, you leave yourself open to a massive lawsuit.
      I suggest you deal with this quickly.

      ADDITIONAL REGRESSION INFORMATION:
      Version 7 Update 45

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      I installed Java and was then directed to check if java was working. After that I was directed to check for older versions, which would then be uninstalled.
      The continue also included an acceptance of T's & C's.
      The hyperlink to T's & C's did not produce any result.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      I expected to be able to read the terms and conditions before I proceeded.
      ACTUAL -
      No Terms and conditions were displayed.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      It's your code, so you should have it.
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      I had to proceed without knowledge of your T's & C's.

      This makes me ver nervous and unhappy.
