I was asked to RSVP via meetup to Matt Stone's upcoming party next weekend. When I went there, it popped up a message saying their T&C had changed. Since when LJ did that I didn't read them, I thought maybe I'd read Meetup's. Under "Information we collect" I find this lovely bit:
With your permission, we may collect other information from your device, such as photos from your camera roll, contacts of individuals you wish to find or connect with, or calendar information you want to manage via the Platform.
Photos??? Seriously? They're going to spy on my phone's camera? Well, I better not ever use meetup from my phone then! Probably it's OK from my laptop, there I have a random folder under c:\yduj and it's unlikely they'll find any there.
