Did you get the email in your inbox about the new Pinterest terms of service? The email is written in plain, clear language, and gets to the meat of the changes in a way that keeps you from needing to read the entire document to know what’s going on.
I’d love to see more communications like this one. It’s fantastic:
Updated Pinterest Terms
Our original Terms stated that by posting content to Pinterest you grant Pinterest the right for us to sell your content. Selling content was never our intention and we removed this from our updated Terms.
We updated our Acceptable Use Policy and we will not allow pins that explicitly encourage self-harm or self-abuse.
We released simpler tools for anyone to report alleged copyright or trademark infringements.
