Let’s diagnose the missteps of FaceApp and why their terms won’t hold up if presented in court.
FaceApp fails to take these measures into account on all fronts:
- Nowhere near the “Subscribe Now” button or the “Decline this offer” link is there any notice that clicking on either means a user is accepting legal terms;
- There is a good chance, based on how courts have interpreted screens like FaceApp’s in the past, that the only terms that MIGHT be enforceable are the subscription / renewal terms that the user sees on the device screen, as shown below:
