I haven't finished reading them yet, but I will. I see that there's to be ads in Basic Journals - I don't know what they are, and have no control over what gets shown. When the option to flag journals as Mature was available, I labeled my journal as such, because I am an adult and sometimes talk about things that may be beyond what a typical 13-yr-old should be reading. In general, I consider myself sensible and not likely to discuss anything profane or illegal or any of that, but others may consider my topics to be otherwise. :P

If you haven't checked out the ToS and Privacy Policy, please consider it. So far, I don't see anything I can't accept.

In contrast, I looked at the game-app company Zynga's privacy policy and was shocked. When I tried to caution a friend about it, she suggested that Zynga feels they have the right to do what they say they have the right to do without her permission. However, they state that if you use their games, you are giving permission, and they're right. Please be comfortable with what you are agreeing to through your use of the product, because even if you haven't read it, using it means you are promising to abide by it.

I love that they include this on their privacy policy:

Public Content: Whenever you post content on the Service and set the privacy setting to “Public” or “Everybody,” you understand that this information may be accessible by anyone with Internet access, whether or not they are logged into LiveJournal. In addition, any content you post publicly may result in unsolicited communications from other parties. You should further understand that any personally identifiable information and/or content that you post on LiveJournal that is viewable by other users may be copied and/or shared without your consent.

I'm down to one Zynga game and that one is rapidly losing interest for me. I routinely block any games, regardless of creator, when I get bored and quit playing them. Heh.

Just as long as you're comfortable with Zynga giving your IP address to third-party software companies, and handing your name, email address, and physical location to others just in case you might want to be neighbours or something. It's not something I was comfortable with, but that's just me.

Well, I don't use my real name on Facebook and I don't have my location on there either. And I don't really claim any family. LOL.
