* use the Service in a way that harms us or our affiliates, resellers, distributors, and/or vendors (collectively, the “Microsoft parties”), or any customer of a Microsoft party;”
I presume that would also include a negative review of the software so I did not accept the terms. It further goes on to say: “We may use technology or other means to protect the Service, protect our customers, or stop you from breaching this Service Agreement…In order to provide you the Service, we may collect certain information about Service performance, your machine and your Service use. We may automatically upload this information from your machine.”
Heard enough? So had I. I’m absolutely going to pass on Health Vault. In addition to looking like the Microsoft Passport debacle redux, this is a very one-sided contract. They can harm you but you cannot harm them. There is no way for any 3rd party to verify that their privacy and security software works.
I did not accept their terms of service and neither should you. Especially when LGPL’ed alternatives such as Indivo Health that have been around for years exists.
