Protecting your account from unauthorized access and fraud is a top priority for us. It helps keep Xbox Live safer and more secure for everyone. Thatís why the TOU now asks all users to commit to keeping their contact information up to date. By the way, now is a great time to make sure your security proofs are valid and accessible to you.

More app experiences available via Xbox Live are provided by a partner with whom you may have a separate online account. If you choose to link this account with your Xbox Live account, we confirm key data points across the accounts by sharing data such as your name, address, email address and date of birth with the partner. In this TOU update, customers agree to allow Microsoft to share this information in this manner.

Lolol, puting your private information in our databanks makes you safer...

I feel pity for those foolish enough to believe that.

Guess what kids? If Microsoft doesn't have your records, your records can't be stolen from Microsoft. See how that works?

Read em and weep. Microsoft is now sharing your info with the companies that work with them whether you like it or not. Taking away the option to opt-out, you now have no choice and no freedom when it comes to who has your information if you ever submit it to microsoft.

Every time you point out that something is an opinion Jesus shoots a kitten in the face.

Man.. I hope you are getting a good check for this today. You have been quite virulent today.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

No, they are literally changing it to this and this was announced today. That statement is false because it's literally different RIGHT NOW.

Pretty much the same thing.

Did you know that your bank shares your SSN and account info with third parties?

Pretty much NOT the same thing since right now it's literally different.

And what do banks have to do with xbox live?

Someone doesn't know what pretty much means.

I'm saying that every company sells your info to third parties. For example there's a private company in Ireland that knows everything about your finances.
