Terms And Conditions May Apply is an American documentary that shows how large companies and even governments can gain large amounts of information about anyone, just by their Internet or phone usage.

If you were to read the Terms And Conditions of every site or application you signed up to in a year, it would take you 180 hours to read that all throughout the year.

That’s one of numerous worrying, and yet extremely fascinating facts from this brilliant documentary about the problems that corporations can cause users, due to the fact it is near impossible to read the whole thing.

This whole issue about the fact that privacy is pretty much ‘dead’ is one of the most difficult and complex problems in modern society, and this film manages to explain it in a very interesting, clearly set out way, that was truly intriguing to watch.

This film was also very clever in the way that it presented the information about this topic. While also being extremely informative and convincing with the input of many high-profile people involved in this field, there was quite a light-hearted aspect to the otherwise very scary nature of the problem, which did make the film a lot more pleasant to watch in my opinion.

Overall, I’ll give this a 7.9 because it was extremely interesting and informative, as well as a great eye-opener into the perils of the new digital world.
