An "inalienable" right cannot be signed away. Consent forms that attempt to do so are not binding in law (though other clauses in the contract may still be). Just because a clause is in a piece of legal boilerplate does not make it instantly binding whether you sign said document or not. Most such have a paragraph at the end indicating that not all sections may be valid in all jurisdictions etc.

And arbitrary search and seizure pertains to police and government agencies. If you want to voluntarily let someone search or seize you, well you have that right too :)
