It seems like every tech company in existence has updated their terms of service over the last year, and we realized that we haven’t done that yet.
Even worse, when we reviewed our own Plain English Terms of Service it became readily apparent that they were too transparent and understandable. That makes it difficult to camouflage the more one-sided and onerous aspects of doing business with us.
Other companies have a preponderance of legalese and jargon that confer on them the right to harvest your data, appropriate your content and terminate you for capricious and arbitrary reasons. We’ve even seen terms of service that included a Power Of Attorney, while some companies like Twitter and Patreon even take it upon themselves to evaluate your behaviour off of their platforms.
We looked at this and thought “Where are the soul crushing, one-sided, take it or leave it terms in our policy?” Shouldn’t we be screwing our users like everybody else?
So we’ve spent the last 60 days creating an addendum to our Terms of Service which is:
- Legally binding on you (not on us)
- Effective retroactively
- Enforceable against your persons and property
It has all kinds of stuff in there we really like which is why you should accept them.
In the event that you do not voluntarily choose to accept the mandatory new Terms of Service Addendum, you may lose access to some or all easyDNS services.
IMPORTANT: if your services are withheld for not accepting the new terms, then a non-acceptance clause in the new addendum kicks in that confers on us the right to keep billing you for them.
