Microsoft's How-Old.Net app has gone viral since it was released at the company's Microsoft Build conference last week.
But Fast Company reports that the app, which allows users to upload photos of people and have Microsoft’s systems analyze them and guess their age, comes with fine-print that may not be to everyone's liking.
The uploaded photos are subject to the terms of Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, which the app accesses to work, and those terms give Microsoft the right to use the pictures across all of its Internet businesses – and to use your name into the bargain.
So, if you have used – or intend to use – How-Old.Net, don't be surprised if someday you see your face and name gracing a Microsoft ad.
