This is called bundled consent. It's abhorrent. What you might do is:
print it off
Scratch off the ones you do not consent to.
See what they say.

Unfortunately, online consent forms are often handcuffing to all or 
nothing. I had this problem with Telstra and therefore refuse to buy 
some things from them that require such craziness. They wanted home 
level subscribers to their cable internet service to agree to abide 
by COMMERCIAL laws! It was nonsensical.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
