*Flickr ToS & PP*
Overall this ToS seemed pretty good to me. Likely class B or C.
** (good) User controlled privacy.
*You can specify whether or not you want your photos to be accessible to
the public, accessible to a select few, or private (only you can access
them with your Yahoo! ID and password). *
** (?) Flickr pro accounts cannot be canceled? This is in a section
about email communication, and seems really out of place to me.
*Communication with you *
*Flickr communication is currently managed separately from your Yahoo! Marketing
Preferences and Subscriptions.
*Visit your Flickr account information area to edit your email
notification settings . *
*Flickr Pro accounts cannot be canceled. *
*Yahoo! Terms of Service* (Flickr users are bound by the Yahoo ToS)
** (bad) Terms of service may be updated at any time with no
notification. Use of service is acceptance of ToS.
*Yahoo! provides the Yahoo! Services (defined below) to you subject to the
following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to
time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the
TOS at any time at: http://info.yahoo.com/legal/us/yahoo/utos/utos-173.html.
By accessing and using the Yahoo! Services, you accept and agree to be
bound by the terms and provision of the TOS. *
** (bad) Real name required or grounds for account termination.
*You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete
information about yourself as prompted by the Yahoo! Service's registration
form (the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the
Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you
provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or
incomplete, or Yahoo! has reasonable grounds to suspect that such
information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Yahoo! has
the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all
current or future use of the Yahoo! Services.*
** (good) Yahoo is licensed to use non-text user generated content only
in ways intended by the user.
*Yahoo! does not claim ownership of Content you submit or make available
for inclusion on the Yahoo! Services. However, with respect to Content you
submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the
Yahoo! Services, you grant Yahoo! the following worldwide, royalty-free and
non-exclusive license(s), as applicable: *
*With respect to photos, graphics, audio or video you submit or make
available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Yahoo! Services
other than Yahoo! Groups, the license to use, distribute, reproduce,
modify, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display such Content on the
Yahoo! Services solely for the purpose for which such Content was submitted
or made available. *
** (?) Users indemnify Yahoo. Seems like all ToSs have this; maybe we
don't need to mention this?
*You agree to indemnify and hold Yahoo! and its subsidiaries, affiliates,
officers, agents, employees, partners and licensors harmless from any claim
or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party
due to or arising out of Content you submit, post, transmit, modify or
otherwise make available through the Yahoo! Services, your use of the
Yahoo! Services, your connection to the Yahoo! Services, your violation of
the TOS, or your violation of any rights of another. *
** (good) Right to leave service.
*You may terminate your Yahoo account, any associated email address and
access to the Yahoo! Services by submitting such termination request to
** (?) It sounds to me like Yahoo generally requires itself to have a
reason to terminate your account, though this can be done without notice.
*You agree that Yahoo! may, without prior notice, immediately terminate,
limit your access to or suspend your Yahoo! account, any associated email
address, and access to the Yahoo! Services. Cause for such termination,
limitation of access or suspension shall include, but not be limited to,
(list of reasons).*
** (bad) Statute of limitations reduced to 1 year.
*You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim
or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Yahoo! Services
or the TOS must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of
action arose or be forever barred. *
** (bad) No mention of how law enforcement information requests are
handled, or promises of transparency.
