John,

What a great find. Thank you for sharing.

 

For years I have been convinced those documents are intentionally so long as to make sure no one reads them. Over 15 years ago, when Kazaa was still rampant and Skype was still owned by the developers (same developers, different owners). I downloaded the TOS and Privacy Statement for Skype. The Skype TOS was over 50 pages (12 point type, letter size paper), and the Privacy Statement another 20+ pages.

 

Related, I recently read (but have not confirmed) that the Twitter competitor Parler includes in its ToS&C a provision that users will bear all legal costs if Parler is sued for content posted by the user.

Thank you.  For years, I have been suggesting to folks that they actually read before just clicking that button but hey what do I know....

 

Also, a fine way for some of them to skirt the privacy issues/laws/regulations....well it was in that agreement that you clicked on, you know line 4005 and 4006 that states we can collect and sell data on you.

 

Would make an excellent blog post for (ISC)2....also, I am going to embedded a few examples in my next awareness session.

 

Best

Re: Does anyone read the Terms and Conditions?

I sometimes have to read them when online services are used for corporate purposes.  Many Ts & Cs are not well written and can be exercises in obfuscation.
