Bookmark: Terms of Service; Didn’t Read

Bookmarked:

“I have read and agree to the Terms” is the biggest lie on the web. We aim to fix that.

Terms of Service; Didn’t Read (ToS;DR) is a site that dissects the terms and privacy policies nobody ever reads and evaluates services based on these.

While the site states that the ratings are out of date, a recent blog post gives hope for a new breath of life to this project.

We have seen improvements in the past years on the wording of Terms of Services but no improvements of the practices and today, the situation is still worrying.

Chatting on Whatsapp, dating on Tinder, sending photos on Snapchat, saving work on Dropbox… those are parts of our everyday lives. Can we leave those services? What is done with our data? Who can access it? Those are questions that are still difficult to answer.
