https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/tosdr/QpRfvZu-CnA/zsdOytAUNEsJ While creating www.clearware.org, I researched various EULAs to break them
down into common elements. With this breakdown, I could review and
categorize common characteristics or terms.

The components of a EULA or ToS include permissions, requirements,
restrictions and functions. Terms call into one of these components.

- *Permissions*: Terms that state how you can use the software or
service are grouped as permissions. This could include permission to use
the software or services for personal use only. Permissions could lso
include opt-in or opt-out clauses and the right to uninstall.
- *Requirements*: When using the software or service you may need to
meet certain requirements. For example, you may need to be 18+ or you may
only use the software or service in a particular location. You may even be
required to accept terms in a separate agreement (i.e. for third-party
software or service).
- *Restrictions*: When using the software you may be prohibited from
doing doing certain things such as copying, reverse-engineering, making
derrivative works. using third-party software/services/hardware or other
actions.
- *Functions*: When using the software or you may need to acknowledge or
be aware of how it behaves. For example, you may need to accept automatic
renewals via credit cards, advertisements, user tracking, gathering of
personal or non-personal information, installation of additional software,
modification of your system, technology that restricts how you use other
software or hardware or more.


Do you think these adequately describes how statements in a EULA or ToS can
be grouped?
