What You Need To Know About Snowflake's Terms of Service
In the 1960s, some scientists had the goal of creating a computer that multiple people could use simultaneously. This desire and a lot of technological advances resulted in the emergence three decades later of cloud computing. In the last decade, the cloud has grown to accommodate several uses including the ability of companies to share data for the purpose of analysis, such as Snowflake provides to its users.
The problem with sharing data is that if it isn't collected, stored, and shared in a way that the consumer has had the opportunity to understand and consent to, it can result in a loss of reputation or even money for the consumer. Has Snowflake violated its terms of service in how it used or shared your data? How would you know? Fortunately, DoNotPay's Analyze TOS product can help you easily complete the following tasks:
- Identify terms of service violations.
- Help you request compensation for the losses you incurred as a result of the violation.
What Is Snowflake?
As cloud computing gained popularity, the founders of Snowflake sought to build a data platform that would take full advantage of the emerging technology. However, once they'd accomplished that goal, they did not stop. Instead, they powered the Data Cloud, which provides the opportunity for companies to share their data and gain a larger understanding of their market. The company currently manages more than 250 PB of data, with more than 515 million data workloads daily.
According to the company's website, some of the reasons why businesses trust the Snowflake Data Cloud include:
- Using the data to identify and eliminate wasteful business practices.
- Ensuring that they're able to meet the specific needs of their consumers as identified through the data.
- Using the data to identify unmet consumer needs in order to develop products or provide services that will fit those needs.
How Do Companies Like Snowflake Violate Their Own TOS?
Whether they're unaware of the rapidly changing laws or they don't choose to follow them, many companies are violating the privacy of their users every day through the methods they use to store, collect, and disseminate data they have obtained from users. Three of the most common types of legal terms of service violations that can result in your private data being mishandled include:
- Failing to inform the user of all the data being collected and the purpose of collecting it.
- Selling or sharing a user's personal data for a reason that they did not consent to in the terms of service.
- Being deliberately vague about the methods used or the data collected so that the user is consenting to a lot more than they realized when they agreed to the terms of service.
How to Tell If Snowflake Has Violated the Terms of Service
The rather painful truth of the matter is this: Unless you are a legal professional or you have a lot of time on your hands, you will likely be unable to detect whether a company such as Snowflake has violated its terms of service, as answering that question would require you to analyze the company's terms of service and compare it in its entirety, as well as in all of its provisions, to applicable state and federal laws. Is this even possible? Yes, but it likely isn't a job you can breeze through in an afternoon without the help of DoNotPay.
