Coming to terms with the terms and conditions you agreed to. With all that you get to access with their site, app or service, do you really want to give up all the access that they take from you?

Loren shares some of the issues and privacy problems that have been showing up more and more when we skip over the details.

In our rush to experience the result of what we see in adding an app, a site or a tool, we often missed the details of the agreements we get ourselves in to. This can include a level of access to not only the social sites, but also what is posted, deleted, shared and the amount of access we allows these apps and the owners and partners of them.


text over graphicsAs part of an example, below is from an app and tool website that allows you to make audio podcasts into videos that can you up on a popular video site.

Audio File here and numerous podcast sites in signature below.

Coming to terms with the conditions

By signing into their site, they state that you are agreeing to their Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. They go on to say they will never post to any of your accounts without your permission.

Yet, as you get to the authorization page, it states as follows…

This application will be able to:

See Tweets from your timeline (including protected Tweets) as well as your Lists and collections.

See your Twitter profile information and account settings.

See accounts you follow, mute, and block.

Follow and unfollow accounts for you.

Update your profile and account settings.

Post and delete Tweets for you, and engage with Tweets posted by others (Like, un-Like, or reply to a Tweet, Retweet, etc.) for you.

Create, manage, and delete Lists and collections for you.

Mute, block, and report accounts for you.

See your email address.

That is only one example and many apps have variations of this. On the other side of the coin, Some levels of access need to be obtained in order to operate, and other apps are free specially to get certain information. Still, in the end, the best strategy is to read through the details and look up service in order to decide if the access is worth going.
