PayPal users, this is for you.
The payments company is rolling out an update to its user
agreement that threatens to bombard you with “autodialed or
prerecorded calls and text messages” — and worse, by agreeing to
the updated terms, you’re immediately opted in.
PayPal can even reach you at phone numbers that you didn’t
provide. Through undisclosed means, PayPal says it has the right
to contact you on numbers “we have otherwise obtained.” […]
“If you do not agree to these amended terms,” the revised document
says, “you may close your account within the 30 day period and you
will not be bound by the amended terms.”
In other words, put up with it — or get out.
I don’t even see the need to comment on this one.
