Often, when major Internet companies make product changes or announce new offerings, people wonder what that means for their privacy. One example in which we're currently seeing this is with Facebook's new Graph Search. Google and Facebook in particular have had to answer to the FTC with regards to privacy issues in the past, and both have to undergo regular third-party audits to make sure they remain in compliance.

Facebook is always making changes to its policies, it seems, and Google launched a major overhaul of its privacy policy last year, enabling it to share data from one product to the next. This continues to draw controversy in some places.

A new documentary called Terms And Conditions May Apply just premiered at Sundance, which takes a deep look into how our use of Google, Facebook, Twitter and other web products impacts our privacy.

The movie was made by Cullen Hoback, who made Monster Camp, and FrICTION.
