Terms of Service and Choose Privacy Week

When we sign up for an online service, do we read the privacy policies and terms of service?  What information is being shared with whom?  When and how is it being shared?  Let’s be honest: few of us thoroughly read such details.

Terms of Service Didn’t Read summarizes policies for many popular sites.  Without slogging through murky language we can still make informed decisions.   I share this resource in honor of Choose Privacy Week (May 1-7).  After all, privacy issues are a part of information literacy.

P.S.  Thanks to the Winter 2016 section of CMS 242 for acquainting me with Terms of Service Didn’t Read.
