"For Web users who pay little attention to a site's terms of service (TOS) policies when they sign up for a service, or even realize that they constantly change, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has your back. The San Francisco based non-profit advocacy and legal organization announced that it is launching TOSBack, a terms of service tracker for Facebook, Google, eBay, and other major websites "to help consumers monitor terms of service for the websites they use everyday, and show how the terms change over time"."
