Microsoft announced it will roll out a new Xbox Live terms of use this week, which will require users to "commit to keeping their contact information up to date." For example, this means users must keep their linked email addresses and phone numbers updated on their Xbox Live accounts.

Those that accept the new terms of use will also allow Microsoft to share personal information "such as your name, address, email address and date of birth" with services that users link accounts with on Xbox Live such as Netflix, Hulu and ESPN. The current terms of use uses similar language in describing how Microsoft already shares private information:

"If you choose to link your Services account with the account of a Microsoft party on the Xbox LIVE service (for example, a game publisher or app provider), you agree that Microsoft may share limited account information with that Microsoft party. Such account information may include name, address, email and age but will not include any credit card or other payment information."

Those "Microsoft parties" are the company's "affiliates, resellers, distributors, service providers, partners and suppliers," so the new terms of use appear to stretch beyond that to these third-party services. As it stands now, users can access their account settings on Xbox.com to opt-out of sharing contact information with Xbox partners.


That's microsoft, giving people choices again :D

How does this make you guys feel? I imagine to some brain dead people it "wouldn't be a big deal" but tell me, what do you think??

Yep - that's all my info right there. Great, now the whole world knows the layout of my house, the color of the socks in my third drawer, and about that time I snuck into the school on a Saturday. THANKS FOR SHARING ALL MY INFO, Microsoft!

What I really want to know is... how did they GET my info in the first place...

Last paragraph.

"Those "Microsoft parties" are the company's "affiliates, resellers, distributors, service providers, partners and suppliers," so the new terms of use appear to stretch beyond that to these third-party services. As it stands now, users can access their account settings on Xbox.com to opt-out of sharing contact information with Xbox partners."

So no, you are wrong. In fact, they are just taking away the option to opt-out.

Every other service shares all the info you give them. It's been like this for a long time.

They took out an opt out option that nobody even used, boo hoo.

Be honest with yourself. Why do you care about this so much? I mean, you even bolded part of it. It's really, really easy not to use their services if it's not worth agreeing to their terms. Are you just benevolently looking out for everyone else? We're big kids, we can decide if we care or not - (hint: if someone has to point it out to us, we probably don't)

You're going to tell me what I did? You went into my account settings and you can see that the box is unchecked? You can see through my eyes and relive my memories in order to attain such information?

Don't be stupid. You're the same guy who give the xbox one a 6/10 lol.
