[Android] User Agreements

Hey! 

I got a great idea, how about that we remove the rights to spy on people thorught the new user agreements.

Like the fact that spotify now can look/ take your pictures, contacts, gps cordinates, and listen to your conversations thourgh the microphone.

Doesn't that sound great?!

If this does not change I for one will end my subscription at spotify and find a new music service.

Have a good day!

Yep. I just cancelled. I really hate these slimy "agreements." Same reason I will not use Facebook, Twitter, etc. Why does Spotify need to collect this information? It is intrusive and creepy. It makes me feel gross.

Also cancelling for the same reason.. A real shame as I've been a big fan for a long time.

Im going to give them a week or two to decide if they will revert back due to negative feedback, if nothing i will also cancel my subscription - Been paying for years now, long time fan, this is completely unacceptable.

Absolutely agree.

Fully agree, I canceled my subscription today as well.

I don't trust any company that asks for this information when it is clearly not part of the service, and nobody ever should.

 

A suggestion to Spotify is to keep this privacy-invading system for non-paying users and have a proper non-intrusive application for paying customers.

That would be acceptable to me, and I'd happily return as a paying customer.
