Terms and Conditions May Apply is a documentary that discusses how corporations and the government utilize the information that users provide when agreeing to browse a website, install an application or purchase goods online. It discusses the language used in user-service agreements on the web, how they collect information, and the usage of the information.

It criticizes companies such as Google, Facebook and LinkedIn for having poorly worded and misguiding privacy policies/terms of service, using language in long documents that allows them to collect user information and legally provide it to third-party users. The film aims to warn people about the risks of clicking “I Agree” after scrolling through pages of uninviting text.
