The following is the disclaimer that should be included on every cloud service, from Google Drive to Microsoft OneDrive to Apple iCloud.
Thank you for using our wonderful cloud storage service. Now you can access your files from anywhere, at any time, on any device!
Please note that while all of our services provide strong two-factor authentication options, we won’t go out of our way to tell you about them, link to them, show you how to use them or require them by default. We don’t want you to think our services are insecure, after all.
Our services allow you to store any and all files on our servers. We also won’t mention that unless you encrypt them prior to uploading, we can access those files internally, provide them to law enforcement, delete them or possibly just open your accounts and browse your data ourselves if we get bored.
While you must agree to our terms of service agreement in order to access cloud storage, please note that it relieves us of any and all legal obligation to actually keep your sensitive data secure. If we happen to miss the fact that we still allow hackers to use brute-force password techniques even in 2014, by agreeing to the terms of service you’re verifying that the fault is on your own stupid head and not in any way our responsibility.
Finally, even if you delete a file from your device, please note that we still have copies of those files on our servers. This allows you to conveniently re-download those files to any device of our choosing, or allows us to keep copies of your files. Again, we get bored sometimes.
Thank you for using the cloud!
