+ - Group of Activists to Shame Tech Biggies with Bad Terms of Service->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec writes: A group of internet activists is going to launch a new rating system for the web this week to rate and analyze the dense and obscure terms of service and privacy policies on websites. The rating system, dubbed 'TOS;DR' or 'Terms of Service; Didn't Read', started off back in June this year and has been functional since then. But, the official launch is going to happen in Berlin at the Telefonica's Campus Party 2012 tech festival. The rating system is aiming to classify popular websites on the basis of transparency of their terms of service. We aim to fix that," reads the site. The group is going to work towards building "a transparent and peer-reviewed process to rate and analyse Terms of Service and Privacy Policies".
