Amazon is ready for the zombie apocalypse
Scroll down. But then who actually reads the small print in those interminable agreements and contracts that have to be agreed to so you can undertake even minor web activities?
When it comes to a new Amazon Web Services agreement, however, be warned. You are not protected against zombies. Amazombies?
Find it here. Section 57.10 in the Amazon Web Services terms and and conditions says.
“However, this restriction will not apply in the event of the occurrence (certified by the United States Centers for Disease Control or successor body) of a widespread viral infection transmitted via bites or contact with bodily fluids that causes human corpses to reanimate and seek to consume living human flesh, blood, brain or nerve tissue and is likely to result in the fall of organized civilisation.
We assume that this is a light hearted addition. But then it’s not entirely clear that Amazon has a sense of humour. So, who knows?
Bezo’s coming fo your brains!
I knew it was a Zombie I was Live Chatting with the other day … claiming to be “Seller Support” sure!
It’s clear that Amazon know very few will ever read the terms and conditions – or at least they won’t get as far as Section 57.10. There could be anything in there: “I hearby sign my life over to the Scientologists for one billion years”.
