Terms of Service; Didn't Read
“I have read and agree to the Terms” is the biggest lie on the web.  We aim to fix that.
We are a user rights initiative to rate and label website terms & privacy policies, from very good class A to very bad class E

ToS;DR is a young project started in June 2012. The data is subject to important changes. This is your opportunity to help us fix the “biggest lie on the web”: join us if you have information to contribute related to specific terms or if you have a comment, check out our guide:

At a minimum, it helps to understand the TOS at a glance for rated services.

@Ren - good find! Thx for sharing!

Check that out along with the AccountKiller website.

AccountKiller is a clearinghouse for instructions on how to delete your account (where possible) from many popular online services.

It may surprise some people how difficult it can be. And it may even come as an even bigger surprise how many sites won't allow you to remove information you previously furnished - even if you do cancel your account with them.

I find that a lot of TOS have section headers, so a lot of them you can skip over because the title says stuff like "arbitration" or "account security" etc.
