Question

does this statement circumvent and TOS ? Does it over ride the" no concent clause" if it is posted in your profile.

According to Linden Labs, disclosure of logs without prior consent in a violation of the ToS.

I am clearly stating to you, that by messaging me, having read or not having read these statements, you consent to being logged and that those logs can be used at my discretion without any further notice beyond these statements in this notice.

Further more, graphical rendering, voice chat, and all public chat is also subject to logging at any given time and may also be used at my discretion unless you say to me explicitly that you do not wish to have your statements disclosed.

All matters conducted in plain view of a non-participating third party are considered public matters, even if in a private location within Secondlife and are therefore not subject to privacy regulations of the terms of service.

LordTalon, there is nothing you can put in your profile that overrides the ToS. People may believe otherwise, but the facts are the facts.  We all agreed to the ToS as a condition of joining and logging in.

That said, the ToS does not prevent disclosing private conversations outside of LL properties.

We get this same question from some inventive resident about once a month.  As far as I know, people have been asking it since SL began 10 years ago.  The answer is always NO, and Linden Lab will be glad to accept an AR if someone files one against you.

"Remotely monitoring conversations in Second Life, posting conversation logs, or sharing conversation logs without the participants' consent are all prohibited."  You can't unilaterally define someone else's consent -- especially in a statement that the other person is rarely likey to see.   "If you leave your car running at the curb while you go into the store, unless you tell me explicitly that it is not OK to drive off with it, I may do so."
