Max Hyre writes "The Nintendo 3DS's terms of so-called service, and the even more grotesquely misnamed privacy policy, make it clear that you are in the service of Nintendo. Specifically, anything you do, write, photograph, or otherwise generate with the 3DS is Nintendo's possession, for them to do whatever, however, whenever, and for as long as they want. On the other hand, if you do something they don't like, they're prepared to turn your device into a doorstop—and you gave them permission when you started using it.

And if you have a child's best interests at heart, don't give it to anyone too young to know to never use her real name, type in an address or phone number, or take any personally-identifiable photos. They might, at best, end up in a Nintendo ad. At worst, who knows?

Some of the details are on Defective by Design's website. I haven't found the full text online yet. If you do, please post it in a comment."
