Like, if I am currently going to register for a contract with any other organization, or if I believe financial transactions are involved, I not only just read the terms and agreements, I also try to keep a copy of the terms. I am currently in contract with a few agencies, and I am also using some services for monetization purposes. I surely do read each and every clause carefully, and take a copy of those terms that I have signed.
For example, recently Microsoft updated their agreement and terms for Developer Accounts (Windows Store), and well I read both the content, the simple English one and the legal one and have taken a copy of the update. Better safe than sorry.
In other usual cases, I do not try to spend time to go through all these terms and legal stuff, as I can leave the application as soon as I can, most of my data (profile information) is available on the Internet nonetheless.
The sh*t I complain about
It's like there ain't a cloud in the sky and it's raining out - Eminem
~! Firewall !~
A catchall on one of my domains - and if I get spammed I punish, in particular, the source that sold me out (EG: if it were amazon, it would be email@example.com; if a local shop, localshopnam@, etc). Only a few have dared - and I have an SMTP mailer that will send out email, in a loop, to my intended target (with real or spoofed return addresses, or spoofed only from major domains, and/or with a variation in subject and body).
They usually learn quickly - even the screen-scrapers from Pakistan.
...I also refused to use a site/product already more than once when I felt, that I will not accept those terms.
This includes a money-back-request to Steam or other platforms. Works always.
NOTHING is so important, that I "have to accept" it. There's always an alternative.
If I don't like what I read, I refuse.
Years ago, during the Facebook hype, I have been on the registration page as friends tried to force me to using it. Read it. Declined. No Facebook for me. And what happened? NOTHING. I am still alive
Same for Twitter. I don't use it. No matter, how "popular" a service is.
I'd even go that far, that companies like Facebook or Twitter couldn't exist, if more people like me would READ what they write there, what they do. Well, that might be false, because there ARE millions of people that just don't care. I only hope for them, that they don't have to pay for this one day...
Oh Apfelstrudel is great...
For all other things related to apple(s)... fruits and electronics are not a good team together, except maybe lemons... they can produce electricity.
Tried to push an apple into a power plug one day... strange result. that was the point, where I, for myself, decided, that I won't use apples for anything other than eating.
Great; but better option is to use fake/non-important email (and other identification details) for login and accept the agreement. I generally do this. No spams. No important information shared publically.
