WaniKani's New Terms of Service

#1

Hi Everyone,

In 30 days, WaniKani will be updating its Terms of Service :anguished:

In terms of the actual content and the stuff you’re agreeing to, not a lot has changed. Instead, this update is more about how our terms were written. Whether you’re a lawyer who’s good at parsing perplexing legal lingo, or a lawyer who’s not so good at reading good, we wanted to make our terms easy to understand. Please give them a read regardless of what kind of lawyer you are (or aren’t). It’s important to understand the terms to which you’re agreeing to as you use WaniKani.

Read the new ToS: https://www.wanikani.com/terms

P.S. I hear there’s a durtle that loves people who read terms of services… Those who post in this thread with a fact or informational tidbit about the ToS may attract it?

Thank you for putting TL;DRs in the TOS, that’s the first time I see that and it’s amazing.

Unfortunately I lost both my eyebrows in 'Nam so I can’t read. I trust you’re only making me agree to give my soul or something.

Terms of service factoid: A human must create your account

There are hedgehogs, robots, dogs, cats, catgirls and all other manner of non-human beings on the forums. Will their accounts be revoked? Or did a human make their accounts for them?:thinking:

Formatting of the quotes in the text needs some work (coming up as &ldqou; in some places) - Good thing there’s a provision for editing the ToS! But I am definitely loving the tl;dr. It makes it so much easier for my not read good not lawyer brain :slight_smile:

I demand an explanation for this! D:<

My factoids about the ToS:

This sound like a part of a Hunger Games manual:

Sever limbs. Don’t waiver. Survive. Check. :ballot_box_with_check:

Also: D:

Edit: The last thing is already being taken care of, I see. So disregard this. :purple_heart:

  1. “Agreement” refers, collectively, to all the terms, conditions, notices contained or referenced in this document (the “Terms of Service” or the “Terms&rdqou;) and all other operating rules, policies (including the WaniKani Privacy Policy, available at wanikani.com/privacy) and procedures that we may publish from time to time on the Website.

you find the weird thingy in the Definitions as well :open_mouth:

oh and under 2. Content : … bla bla : “Content&rdqou; bla as well :smiley: :durtle_megane:

P.S.:
Conduct restrictions:

  • impersonate any person or entity, including any of our employees or representatives, including through false association with Tofugu, or by fraudulently misrepresenting your identity or site’s purpose;

aren’t we all trying to impersonate somebody who actually understands Kanji O_O?

“you will not under any circumstances…attempt to disrupt or tamper with Tofugu’s servers”

Tbh I’m a bit disappointed that you guys would claim that no one wants this to become a spam haven. How am I expected to agree to ToS that would reject this???
