NetVibes Cookies, Privacy Policy, and ToS

I’m doing research about what to include (and not include) on website ‘Terms of Service (ToS)’ and ‘Privacy Policy’ pages. When you research this topic (searching via Bing or Google), you’ll probably find several helpful articles that explain why these pages are needed on most modern websites, and some hints at what to include on those pages.

While those ‘how to’ articles might be helpful for the ‘average small business’, I wanted to do my own original research, and look at the ToS and privacy policies of websites from a variety of industries.  Over the next few weeks, I will be researching and reviewing a somewhat random sampling of these boring (but necessary) pages.
