Thank you Google

A clear, simple, straightforward template for Terms of Service has been on my wish list for years. Google has just granted my wish! Their new format for January 2022 is a pleasure to read. And I see other tech companies switching their wording as well.

Kudos to all of you Technical Writers that worked tirelessly to provide the weary public with this gift. I, along with many, applaud you! The technology user’s relationship with technology companies has vastly improved.

Please, all of you organizations out there with heavy legalese filling your terms, have a look at this new concept. Jump on the bandwagon and give us something easy on the eyes and the brain, something that says we’re partners instead of on opposite sides of the desk of a looming, powerful group of attorneys.

Thank you!
