I’ve noticed a trend for online address books, such as those offered by Plaxo or Bebo. I consider these things to be the devil.
It is possible that as we continue to develop our website and our business, Bebo’s service and/or related assets might be acquired. Notwithstanding any provision in this policy to the contrary, in event of a merger or acquisition, your personal information may be transferred to the acquiring entity, and become subject to the acquirer’s data practices.
Do you know what this means? No? Well, I do, and I shall tell you. It means:
“If we go out of business, we will probably be bought by a spammer, who is only interested in our magnificent database of email addresses.”
Devil, I tell you.
