Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Polygon: New Xbox Live terms ask users to commit to security, agree to share data with partners

Agreeing to share your data with partners is NOT standard in most TOS's, the usual people saying otherwise are busy downplaying this news.

And don't attack the OP for something you don't want to see. The mod's made a thread about this subject in which they warned people not to crucify the OP when they don't like a thread's subject.

So respect the rules if you don't like moderation.


Go to any TOS where you have to sign u for something with your information.

Have you ever been to a mall or store and they have cars on display to win? When you fill out those cards with your information read the TOS. Then in a few months you start getting calls from their sponsors because they shared that info on the card/paper.

Ethomaz works so hard to make M$ look bad. The EULA is pretty standard from what he posted. The sharing of information between companies that already have your info is no big deal.



It is near the end of the end....

Idk about all this but, anyone else getting fed up and refusing to give MS yet ANOTHER email or phone number? Every time I log on now, it tries to FORCE me, a paying costumer of 10 years, to give them yet another place to spam me. NOT...GOING...TO...HAPPEN.

Glad I'm making the move to PS4 this gen. Won't miss their crap one single bit.



Didn't we already agree to this on Facebook and Twitter? ^^



if i understood it correct microsoft can share the data you gave them with the partners of whom you use the content from? so, if you use hbo, microsoft will give them the data you would also give hbo if you would use it on a pc or somewhere else which is not the xbox?

so, instead of you having to type in your information for every new app which requires these information, microsoft will do it automatically if you use this app?

if i understood it correct it makes totally sense. if i didn't underatand it correct forget my post.

Don't take any websites word for it. Read it yourself. Its simply verifying your information between the services you already use so that you aren't subject to fraud.



At some point the government is going to ask Microsoft to remotely turn on the kinect to spy on people and Microsoft are going to comply.



This is the Game of Thrones

Where you either win

or you DIE

if you have a gmail account... you're already sharing more information than you ever will with this.

But... obviously, it's creeping the line of getting more and more invasive. Not that sony hasn't done a lot of dumb shit too. If you really want to avoid being tracked you really shouldn't use the internet in any form.

More shocked that anyone actually takes time to read those TOS.. Like we don't all scroll down and click on "accept"

Nah I press right and click accept, takes too long to scroll down.

I wonder how are Eula's enforceable when you only see them after the point of sale. Can you even bring an opened piece of software back to the store and say you want your money back because you clicked 'I do not agree'... Adding terms after money has already changed hands is not how contracts normally work.

Yeah you can request a refund.
