Open Terms Archive, a tool to check the conditions of use of major platforms


Monitoring the contractual commitments of the main online service providers is the objective of Open Terms Archive. This free and collaborative tool is launched today by the digital ambassador of France, a position attached to the Quai d’Orsay and occupied by Henri Verdier.

A database to which everyone can contribute

The database is made up of the texts of the conditions of use, the confidentiality policies and the developer contracts of the main platforms. It is regularly updated and everyone can contribute.

Thanks to the tool called Scripta Manent, you can also check if the T & Cs have changed since your registration or between two specific dates, ask to be notified in the event of a change by subscribing, or navigate between each version. Use cases are also detailed. Finally, the API is available to everyone.

This approach fulfills two objectives. “Through this tool, it is about empowering citizens, businesses and regulators to freely decide on their practices and their relationships with digital players”, can we read on the site presenting Open Terms Archiv. The ambition is also to contribute to the construction of a regulatory framework based on constructive dialogue between the different parties.
