Terms and Conditions May Apply – How Web Companies Steal Your Rights and Information

This is an important and frightening film, about how Google, Amazon, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin – and IMDb? – harvest our personal information and on sell it to the highest bidder, or to the government. How we don’t read that wodge of text in capitals comprising “Terms and conditions” before we click “Accept” – nobody could, it would take a month per year for everything we sign. But even when that text is brief and written in plain English, it gives those corporations unprecedented power over our personal information – including the right to change the rules without telling us, to increase their power without limit and without asking again, and to keep it forever, even after we have “deleted” it.
