Subject [Aoo] Privacy Policy Draft was( Re: Assistance with rewriting TOU/PP for Apache OpenOffice.org podling)
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 16:14:44 GMT
Howdy List,

Ok, well the TOU has been available for review for a while [1], no

If you look at the draft TOU it references a currently non-existent PP

edits and placed a draft for same at:


This assumes that for now there will be no third party analytics.

Thanks for you time,
