DOCSOC/1790202v2/102833-0000


[1] At this point, there’s no real services I think through the website but based on what we saw on the site now, it seems like this could come in the future.  

[2] The definition of “All Users” and “Other Users” becomes particularly important when there are users interacting with each other through the service like an Uber, eBay, etc.  

[3] There’s no reason not to set this at age 18 unless you have something geared towards kids.  It makes things a lot easier as far as privacy law compliance.  

[4] This language is important because users sometimes make the argument that they have come to “rely” upon a service and that the service cannot be terminated without sufficient warning, etc.  

[5] This provision is important to defeat any violation of privacy type claims.  

[6] For those sites or apps where some of the Company content is meant for limited sets of eyes, this provision is helpful.  Here, I think it makes sense to include.  I think one of our main concerns was people passing the information on to others cutting us out.  

[7] This provision is more applicable if the Service involves Company providing “up to date” data like stock quotes, etc.  The idea is that we put the user on notice that the data can be deleted.

[8] This is applicable if the user is posting data for other users to see.  So this becomes relevant if the service is something like a social media app or a messaging app.  The Digital Millenium Copyright Act provides a safe harbor for the website/app provider to be shielded from contributory copyright infringement claims.  

[9] This is useful to the extent that the service provider must make sure that new versions of an app are used if there is a time in the future when there is an app associated with your service.  It is less necessary if there is only a website involved.  

[10] These updating provisions are very important because as a practical matter, terms need to get updated to account for changes in the business, updates to the law or mistakes in previous drafts.  I believe this updating mechanism is the most enforceable.  Other website terms simply state that the company can update the terms at any time.  This has been struck down by at least one court as essentially an illusory contract since the user has no opportunity to practically “opt out” of the changes.
