We all check out the terms and conditions before we agree to something, right?
The following video by YouTube prankster Jena Kingsley makes a serious point in a humorous fashion – proving how willingly people will agree to just about *anything* if it means they might get a free iPad.
Internet companies take advantage of the knowledge that consumers don’t bother to read legalese to exploit your misplaced trust – perhaps installing unwanted toolbars onto your computer, snaffling up your data and spamming your address book, or popping up unwanted adverts.
Yes, I know it’s a bore. But do try to be a little more cautious about what you agree to next time you sign up for a website, or install a piece of software.
With luck you won’t be unwittingly agreeing to give up one of your kidneys, but you might find that companies are using this as a legal loophole for them to perform some dirty tricks on your computer or with your personal data.
