FB, suck it.

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

Here are some of the terms that the FB folks intended to force on us:

3. User data
d. Compliance Review Rights. Upon our written request from time to time, you shall permit us and third-party professionals working at our direction (including auditors, attorneys, consultants, and/or computer forensics analysts) (collectively, “Auditors”) to review or audit your books, records, agreements, access logs, third party audit and examination reports, (real and virtual) systems, networks, technologies, facilities (including physical and remote access to data centers and cloud facilities), controls, processes, policies and procedures, which relate to the User Data and/or the Extended Platform Products to ensure compliance with our Online Terms and these Supplemental Terms. You will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain permission from your Service Providers for us or our Auditors to perform the above review relating to the User Data and/or the Extended Platform Products. You shall provide us and our Auditors such information and assistance (including access to your personnel who are knowledgeable regarding your access to and use of the User Data and/or the Extended Platform Products), at your sole expense, as reasonably requested in order to perform the compliance review.


5. General. You will not, directly or indirectly, disclose the existence or content of these Supplemental Terms without our prior written consent in each instance. These Supplemental Terms are supplemental terms under the Terms and Commercial Terms. […] Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, to the extent these Supplemental Terms conflict, or are inconsistent, with the Online Terms or any existing agreement you have in place with us, these Supplemental Terms do not limit your obligations or our rights under the Online Terms or such existing agreement, and the terms that are more restrictive on you or more protective of us apply. For clarity, per our Commercial Terms, we may make changes to the Supplemental Terms and by continuing to access or use Platform after notice of any update to the Supplemental Terms, you agree to be bound by them.

No sane person running a service or app, let alone one that has another window to the outside-FB-world such as phixr through its website, can sign this.
