Human Readable Terms / Policies / Guidelines

Tumblr won a piece of my heart with this, probably the first large-scale social network TOS that is organized in a way that indicates it’s designed to be read.

Broken into three sections (TOS, Privacy Policy, and Community Guidelines) and written with a hint of Tumblr’s community tone and manner (Check out the last two images), this is a step beyond most companies, in terms of making a legal document for human beings.

It’s still a lot of text, and could stand some consolidation or guidance, but for now? I’m calling this as a best in class example.


Agreed. When this popped up on my screen, I was very impressed. Breaking it up into a user-friendly, three-tabbed section really helps.
