Patch is AOL -- the same company that has been sued by its customers, advertisers, investors, employees and numerous
government agencies for its failure to respect anyone rights.
Your License to Patch
Patch is built to let you do fun things such as share and upload photos, videos, text, and other
information (all of which we call "Content"). When you do this, you own that Content. However (and
here comes some legalese), you hereby grant Patch a perpetual license to use, redact, republish,
copy, perform and distribute your Content and screen name, including any intellectual property
contained therein, in any medium now known or hereinafter developed without payment or compensation
to you and without seeking any further approval from you. We may further use your name, likeness,
publicly accessible biographical data and any other information in connection with such use of the Content.
You acknowledge that our use of your Content may include licensing such Content to third parties and/or using
such Content for advertising purposes. In no event shall we be required to seek your approval or provide
you with any compensation in connection with such uses.
(bolding and underlines added)
AOL, the real company behind Patch released millions of user's private data in the past.
They'll even use your own data against you!
Remember trying to cancel an AOL membership??
They would have reps look at your account info, then use your children's names to pitch you on staying asking questions like, "Do you really want to disconnect little Billy and Sally from all their friends?"
