Hello world, I start a new adventure
The goal of this new initiative is to analyze and comment the huge amount of pages from the terms and conditions that invade our digital life and that we accept without much hesitation.
The idea has been around for quite some time now, but I wasn’t doing much with it. The subject has always interested me but I couldn’t find a good website about it in Spanish, or even in English. Beyond the major cases that happen from time to time, I was looking for one site exclusively devoted to analyze the terms and conditions of the digital services and products that we use. Because let’s not fool ourselves, the world of the terms and conditions stands for way more than Facebook, Google or Twitter.
Then some few weeks ago I read something that made my mind up. According to this, we would need 76 work days to read all the privacy policies that we blindly accept during a year. “Nonsense!”, I thought.
Well then, let’s see if we can help to reduce that period a little bit, and at the same time we improve the security and visibility of the terms and conditions that we accept.
I know that there will be days where I’ll feel like giving up. I know that I’ll have to invest quite some time reading and looking up for information, but I think that in the end it’ll be positive because I’ll have to explore new subjects and go over the ones that got rusty.
Needless to say that my goal is not to analyze the terms and conditions of the usual services, although that will happen too. The idea is to review the usually unknown ones that nevertheless are used by millions of users every day.
See you soon, then! :-)
