Amazon says that users should keep checking their policy because their business varies.

However, large companies such as Google and Facebook are claiming that they are trying to simplify their written policies to simplify users.

But the security of the users on online mediums, especially the organizations working for the protection of children, do not consider these efforts of the companies as adequate.
