5. Snapchat Can Use Your Child’s Content for Their Own Purposes

Another reason to advise your kids to consider what they share carefully is Snapchat’s content clause in their Terms of Service.

“…you grant Snapchat a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free, sublicensable, and transferable license to host, store, use, display, reproduce, modify, adapt, edit, publish, create derivative works from, publicly perform, broadcast, distribute, syndicate, promote, exhibit, and publicly display that content in any form and in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed).”

In other words, if they think they’re really only sharing content among friends, they’re very wrong.
