Über uns

“Nutzungsbedingungen; Nicht gelesen” (kurz: ToS;DR) ist ein Projekt gestartet im Juni 2012 um “die größte Lüge im Internet” zu beseitigen: fast keiner liest wirklich die Nutzungsbedingungen denen wir ständig zustimmen.

Hintergrund. Die grobe Idee hinter ToS;DR entstand während des 2011 Chaos Communication Camp in der Nähe von Berlin, mit Leuten von Unhosted, einer Bewegung zur Erstellung von Web-Apps, die Nutzern die Kontrolle über ihre wertvollen Nutzerdaten und ihre Privatsphäre geben. Im Sommer 2012 begann Hugo Roy (@hugoroyd) mit der rechtlichen Analyse und rief das Projekt ins Leben. Seitdem sind weitere Personen dem Team beigetreten und haben über die Reviewer-Community beigetragen. Letztlich ist die gesamte Arbeit transparent und die Diskussionen finden öffentlich statt. Unsere Arbeit wird finanziert durch gemeinnützige Organisationen und Einzelspenden und wird als freie Software und offene Daten veröffentlicht.

Bitte bedenke, dass sich das Projekt noch in der Anfangsphase befindet und die meisten Daten noch wichtigen Änderungen unterliegen werden. Mehr Informationen über unsere Klassifizierung.

Was bedeutet "ToS;DR"? Der Name ist inspiriert von dem Internet-Akronym TL;DR, das für "Too Long; Didn't Read" (zu lang; nicht gelesen) steht und oft in Blogs und E-Mails verwendet wird, wenn ein Textblock einfach sehr lang ist und die Leute zu faul sind, das ganze Zeug zu lesen. Es war mehr als Codename gedacht, denn als echter Name. Aber es scheint, dass die Leute ihn mögen (Sie auch?)
