No one takes the time to actually read the Terms and Conditions. No one. Hell, the one that pops up before you can get onto iTunes is longer than Macbeth (that isn't a joke). It's no wonder most of us blindly agree to whatever legalese flashes across our screens. We need our Facebook, and we need it now.
But unsurprisingly, there are some interesting little tidbits lurking in there, and you should probably know about them. With the help of the site Terms of Service; Didn't Read, we dug up some of the sketchiest terms that'll make you think twice next time you give that pop-up notification a cursory glance. Or don't. God, you're so lazy.

I.e., literally everything you've ever tweeted. Whether you use Twitter as a newsfeed or to share the boring minutiae of your life in 140 characters all the live-long day, Twitter's terms of service clearly states they retain the rights to everything, even if you close or deactivate your account.

You don't actually own any of the music you buy

As one of the wordiest user agreements out there, you better believe iTunes' Terms and Conditions is flush with sketchy stuff. One that particularly stands out is the fact that, despite how much money you've dropped on Taylor Swift and Rihanna remixes, you're paying for the right to watch or listen to that media... but you don't actually own any of it.
You can't use anything in the iTunes store to make biological weapons
So, you can't use apps to break the law. More specifically, you may not use them in the "development, design, manufacture, or production of nuclear, missile, or chemical or biological weapons." OK, sure!

They can do whatever they want with your photos and information

Certainly the biggest boogeyman of the bunch, Facebook has quite a few eyebrow-raising details hidden in the fine print. For one, you give them license to use all your photos in any capacity they want (in an advertisement, for instance). They retain that license even if you delete your account, unless that "content" has been deleted by everyone else. Facebook also reserves the right to use your data, whether it's to improve their services or to conduct controversial psychological studies. Also...
