A depressing reflection of a pervasive and thoroughly modern malaise.

Dustin Putman

A riveting, fast-paced documentary about our increasing lack of privacy in a world overrun by social media, "Terms and Conditions May Apply" is skillfully pieced together like a first-rate thriller.

Not just a documentary about Internet privacy, but a non-fiction horror flick for anyone who blindly agrees to user licensing agreements online (a.k.a. everyone).

Disturbing and enraging. It raises awareness about the searing topic of invasion of privacy in an entertaining, easy-to-follow fashion that includes comic relief and doesn't resort to merely one talking head after another.

Terms and Conditions May Apply takes an interesting turn when it delves into the subject of government eavesdropping on private citizens. Turns out Big Brother and big business are in bed together.

Your brain will be overflowing with information by the end of this short 79-minute exercise. Taxing? Perhaps. Entertaining. Yes...

One of the most important and eye-opening films of the year, a brisk compendium of the ways the websites and web businesses we all use exploit our personal data.

The film presents some worthwhile information, but in a painfully uncreative manner.

The term "opting in" suggests a matter of choice. But as the thoughtful and spirited documentary "Terms and Conditions May Apply" makes chillingly clear, choices are few for netizens.

An engaging and rather scary nonfiction look at the death-by-papercut of online privacy.

Nobody reads the terms-and-conditions of Web sites. They're designed to discourage us from doing so... and there's a reason why.

Even given the shapelessness of the picture, Hoback does the best he can in providing an imperfect timeline to a possibly worsening issue.

This film makes you understand why a whistle-blower like Edward Snowden emerged. The incestuous relationship between the Facebooks of the world and the NSA will certainly lead to a Stasi-like police state unless an aroused population takes action.

Terms and Conditions May Apply encourages viewers to think more critically about the massive spying infrastructure being built underneath the seemingly free, benign social playgrounds that they digitally inhabit.

The title of "Terms and Conditions May Apply" is unlikely to excite, but the content of this quietly blistering documentary should rile even the most passive viewer.

Apart from its shallow analysis,Terms And Conditions is, if anything, not alarmist enough.

Insightful and swiftly edited, this is eye-opening work, even without a proper crescendo to leave viewers enraged and freshly paranoid.
