  • A depressing reflection of a pervasive and thoroughly modern malaise.

    August 15, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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).

    August 9, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • A quietly appalled we-really-oughta-do something documentary ...

  • 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.

    Should be on the national curriculum for digital literacy, a good insight into how privacy, data, platforms and algorithms really work - "If it's free, you're the product"

    "Term and Conditions May Apply" is a great documentary that is a wake up call to anyone who believes that once you share something online about yourself, that is actually 100% private. Watching this documentary you almost feel like you are rapidly being slapped in the face by companies and certain individuals who really do not care about what you think, they will only make it so that they get money while you are being exposed. For anyone who has not ever read the terms and conditions before clicking the agree button, maybe you should give this film a watch instead. This is a very true representation of the direction our world is going, and it is terrifying. This is a very well-made film that not only makes me think differently about what I am saying yes to, but to whom I am saying it to and who I am giving access to. Overall, this is a great documentary that I believe everyone who is an avid social networking user should view.

    Brilliant documentary about Internet site terms and policies, and it shows some shocking facts that what we post online can be shared to the government. This is an eye opening film, but at the same, the material presented here is not new and that's why you have to take measures to protect yourself on the internet. Like for me, I use Facebook quite a lot due to my job, but I also add more memes and hilarious pics than personal information, because in the end, you never know what is being shared on Facebook and other sites. The film is a well researched and has plenty of great interviews as well, and it's a well research subject for those interested in the subject. For people wanting to know what really goes on when you sign up with the terms and conditions. The film shows that Government can use the info you post on the internet to spy on you. I think that this is shocking, disgusting, and make you think twice about the fact that what you post on the internet can put you on in hot water. I think that we should be entitled to privacy and are entitled to have our rights without having fear for what we post on the internet. In fact most of the data that we type in on the internet can be constantly be misused, and that our right to freedom is in jeopardy. There should be some new laws to protect citizens of not being reprimanded of what they post on the internet. This is a well crafted documentary that raises awareness of what is really going on when you click the "I Agree" options of the Terms and Conditions of various websites.

    Anyone ever read the terms and agreements of say facebook or google? Yeah me either, I just click agree and move on. Well, this is a documentary about what is in those terms and how privacy laws have really changed the last ten years, taking away a lot of our privacy. For people who use the internet a lot(pretty much everyone) this is eye opening and definitely worth a watch. The narrator is a little on the stoic boring side, but the movie is always interesting. One of those docs that will get conversations going.
