About the Movie
Have you ever read the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policies connected to every website you visit, phone call you make, or app you use? Of course you haven’t. But those agreements allow corporations to do things with your personal information you could never even imagine. This film explores the intent hidden within these ridiculous agreements, and reveals what corporations and governments are legally taking from you and the outrageous consequences that result from clicking “I accept.”

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: Deftly balancing twin goals of informing and entertaining, the pic matter-of-factly details the various ways that marketers, multinational corporations, police departments and government-run intelligence-gathering organizations obtain and exploit info.
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: Though it mostly summarizes available arguments instead of uncovering new facts, it's an accessible primer that could have some appeal at arthouses.
This is a really compelling and fascinating documentary. Everyone who uses the internet should see this film.
I liked the movie and thought this was telling:
At age 19, Mark Zuckerberg explained to a friend that his control of Facebook gave him access to any information he wanted on any Harvard student:
ZUCK: yea so if you ever need info about anyone at harvard
ZUCK: just ask
ZUCK: i have over 4000 emails, pictures, addresses, sns
FRIEND: what!? how’d you manage that one?
ZUCK: people just submitted it
ZUCK: i don’t know why
ZUCK: they “trust me”
ZUCK: dumb ****s
YOU MUST WATCH THIS!!
Fantastic documentary about dangerous electronic surveillance and the obliteration of privacy, of righteous, decent boundaries.
Everyone with an ounce of care for themselves and their country should see it. I will be recommending it to everyone I know.
