Weird terms/conditions!

Some of the freakish terms we have come across  & sources… 

 

You agree to give Snapchat “worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free, sublicensable, and transferable license to host, store, use, display, reproduce, modify, adapt, edit, publish, create derivative works from, publicly perform, broadcast, distribute, syndicate, promote, exhibit, and publicly display that content in any form and in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed).”

You have agreed not to hold Twitter responsible for fake news

Though many T&Cs outline that you will not hold a website or social network responsible for any offensive or upsetting content you see on its services, Twitter goes a step further. “We do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any Content or communications posted via the Services or endorse any opinions expressed via the Services,” it writes.

Snapchat – which has very transparent policy wording – admits to retaining “how you communicate with other Snapchatters, such as their names, the time and date of your communications, the number of messages you exchange with your friends, which friends you exchange messages with the most, and your interactions with messages”.

Not even your Twitter Direct Messages are sacred, as the company admits it “store[s] and process[es] your communications, and information related to them”.

 

You have accepted that you may not be able to delete your account properly

Even though many companies can delete you and your stuff willy-nilly, some sites and services reserve the right to retain your information even after you delete your account. Instagram, for instance, admits that after you deactivate your account, it and “its Affiliates, or its Service Providers may retain information (including your profile information) and User Content”. YouTube “may retain, but not display, distribute or perform, services copies of your content that you have removed or deleted”. And Facebook retains a licence on your images unless your content has been deleted by your Friends, too.
