Light-bulbZynga's updated terms of service

by Melissa Cody Kassens - Dec 02, 2010 Star_s399 views

Zynga has updated their terms of service.  What is Gamer's Unite response to this?  Do we have to stop using the Snag Bar, or risk being booted off?

i think they are going to bar people, i was using it on my laptop around an hour ago just after i had actually read the new policy by the way, my snag bar stopped working and i removed it, to re add it, as it has been playing up just recently, when i tried to re add the toolbar it just locked up my laptop. the policy is only to become in effect 30 days after it had been published as far as i was aware, but perhaps they are now stopping anyone else getting the tool bar, and yes i tried it on other accounts as several of us in the same house have facebook accounts but they dont all play farmville.


Another part of it that worries me and probably quite a few others, is the part about only having one account, and not using accounts in anyone elses names....I have several accounts myself, whats gonna happen to me? =[


It's looking grim....
No third party automation software? Sounds Like (Gamers Unite -Third Party and Tool Bar - Automation Software) ..
Basically they can ban us for using the tool bar and they can track it because they added the following:

1.2. Privacy Policy
We designed Zynga's Privacy Policy to make important disclosures about how we collect and use your content and information and how you can use the Service to share such information with others. This can mean observing our account...

Any Thoughts...?


It does kind of seem like it since the snagbar does in a way "interfere the the Service" (even though it takes the information from FB rather than FV) --- Gamer's Unite claims that the snagbar is ok because of that. Technically, Zynga doesn't approve of the snagbar, but they can't know of the use of the snagbar unless you inadvertently post a screenshot with the snagbar in it when asking for help.


I saw that too. At least it comforts me to know that it's not just me that got the message when loading my farm. It scared me. Paranoia will destroy ya :-) But seriously, Let's see what the admin has to say. I wouldn't know what to do without my farm. Not taking any chances.


I was also wondering :)

This is in it:

CHEATING AND HACKING - You agree that you will not, under any circumstances:

d. Use cheats, exploits, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with the Service, any Zynga Game or any Zynga game experience;
e. Use the Service in order to design or assist in the design of cheats, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any other unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with the Service, any Zynga game or any Zynga game experience;

Does that mean the snagbar isn't allowed anymore???
