https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/tosdr/YKHUPwBa5XY/i1HCqOpduOkJ F-List.net is a site for adult-themed RP. While, in itself, it is not a
game, it hosts several, and provides services for freeform RP. The required
reading before joining is in three documents, all available from the bottom
of every page.
ToS: http://www.f-list.net/doc/tos.php
Privacy Policy: http://www.f-list.net/doc/privacy.php
Rules: http://wiki.f-list.net/index.php/Rules

*PLEASE BE WARNED: THIS SITE IS NSFW.* (but the ToS and Privacy Policy do
not have any NSFW content on them)

I'm using the following to indicate my opinions on the terms:
I: information
G: Good!
~: Mediocre
X: Alert
?: I have no idea what to compare this to

*Services requiring registration:*

- [~]Changing Terms: The terms can be changed at any time, with no
notice. "We expressly reserve the right to change these Terms of Use from
time to time without notice to you. You acknowledge and agree that it is
your responsibility to review this site and these Terms of Use from time to
time and to familiarize yourself with any modifications."
- [~]Suspension and Censorship: Due to the adult nature of the site,
accounts can be banned if they belong to an underage individual. The usual
provisions barring harassment, impersonation, piracy, spamming, and hacking
the site also apply. Accounts can be banned without notice to the owner.
- [~]Right to leave: While accounts can be 'deleted' (stated in the
ToS), this does not actually purge associated character profiles from the
database, but only renders them unviewable (not stated in the ToS, but
discussed in the suggestions forum). If you intend to leave, I would
suggest that you delete your characters first, and then the account. It's a
few steps, but it's definitely possible. It is also possible to open a
ticket and request the account and its associated characters be deleted. (I
have reasons to believe this discrepancy in policy vs reality is due to bad
code, rather than ill intent.)
- [G]Personal Data: The only personal data required to make an account
is an email address, which is never made public. Other contact information
(IM names, usernames from popular MMOs) can be made available on character
profiles, and can be removed just as easily.
- [I]Sharing RL Info: Aside from other digital methods of communication,
sharing personal information is prohibited. No personally identifiable
information may be shared, nor may RL meetups be arranged.
- [~]Third Parties: "We will not share -any- of your data with third
parties without your permission." BUT "You also grant us the right to
disclose to third parties certain Registration Data about you."
Registration data consists entirely of a username, password, and email
address. No other information is collected, nor has any evidence, even
anecdotally, arisen of the second statement coming to pass.
- [?] Law and government requests: In short, if it's public, it's
public. But, if it's not, you need a warrant. "We will not inspect or
disclose the contents of private Communications except with the consent of
the sender or the recipient, or in the narrowly-defined situations provided
under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, or as other required by
law or by court or governmental order."
- [I]Age requirement: 18 years of age, or legal majority in your area,
if higher.
- [G]API Access: "F-List does share some profile data (excluding contact
details) with other sites that may want to offer services like embeddable
profiles, and stuff like that. If you don't want this, turn API access off
in settings, and any access to your profiles is blocked."
- [I]Shared Accounts: ...are prohibited. One account, one user.
- [I]Multiple Accounts: ... are permitted, provided one is not using
them to evade a ban.

*Services with user generated content:*

- [?]Scope of the copyright license: "Subject to our Privacy Policy, any
communication or material that you transmit to this site or to us, whether
by electronic mail, post, or other means, for any reason, will be treated
as non-confidential and non-proprietary. While you retain all rights in
such communications or material, you grant us and our agents and affiliates
a non-exclusive, paid-up, perpetual, and worldwide right to copy,
distribute, display, perform, publish, translate, adapt, modify, and
otherwise use such material for any purpose regardless of the form or
medium (now known or not currently known) in which it is used."
- [?]Ownership: User retains all rights, but grants the site a
"non-exclusive, paid-up, perpetual, and worldwide right to copy,
distribute, display, perform, publish, translate, adapt, modify, and
otherwise use such material for any purpose regardless of the form or
medium (now known or not currently known) in which it is used."
- [~]Copyrighted material removal requests: Upon receiving a properly
filed DMCA request, sent to the correct address, the offending material
will be removed, pending adjucation. (There is a list with eight bullet
points on the information that must be included in the request.) "You
acknowledge and agree that upon receipt of a notice of a claim of copyright
infringement, we may immediately remove the identified materials from our
site without liability to you or any other party and that the claims of the
complaining party and the party that originally posted the materials will
be referred to the United States Copyright Office for adjudication as
provided in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act."

*Additional common topics to watch for:*

- [G]Anonymity and Tracking: No data is stored longer than one day.
"While we do collect data of site usage, both for statistical and for
security purposes (Pretty much all raw $_POST/$_GET data if you know what
this means) This info is deleted after one day. We don't store any data
like this for longer than a day. A cronjob is ran twice every day that
deletes data that is older than a day."
- [I]Cookies: Site uses cookies for logins and to store user preferences
for the web-based chat client. Deleting the cookies logs out the user and
resets the client defaults.
- [I]Jurisdiction and Governing Laws: State of Texas, US. "Each of us
agrees and hereby submits to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue
any court of competent jurisdiction within the State of Texas with respect
to such matters."
