Really… You Should Read Tumblr’s the Terms of Service: No Posing as Benedict Cumberbatch

Really, have you read the ToS for any of the online platforms you use? Didn’t think so. But, seriously, you should check out Tumblr’s new offering. Apart from being a legal necessity, it might just lighten your day.

Changing its Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, and Community Guidelines to reflect Yahoo’s acquisition; expressing that the use of Tumblr sells your sold to the devil. Jokes. But read them ToS again – closely…

“Tumblr may determine your location by using drone technology and live video feeds. Ha, ha, no,”

Legal Jargon: “Don’t make us narc on you.”

Why Tumblr Says No To Pornography

Dealing with spam

Don’t Impersonate Benedict Cumberbatch

Tagging your cat as ‘Doctor Who’. No.

Dam! Good-bye Doctor Who, you’re off to the Animal Rescue Centre now.


Play nicely

You can be that there are a few lawyers out there laughing. Enjoying watching the world puzzle at a rather crazy ToS. Well that’s Tumblr. It’s refreshing to see a company take a lighter approach to what can be hell on the internet.

Tumblr… we take our social hat off to you.
