national laws in which digital agreements are equalized to written ones.

Ianal - but for German (and most EU countries) law, digital agreements are only
equivalent to written ones, if there is a trusted electronic signature in place.

So a just "click thru" would not really establish something that is legally binding.

The same in Italy, i think. The framework on digital signatures was
established in EU in 1999:

and i think is currently adopted in almost all UE countries national laws.

bye,
rob


regards,

André
