Tech buyers often misunderstand contract terms about data. So they don’t protect themselves in agreements about software-as-a-service and other types of cloud computing. I see the resulting weak contracts in my work as a lawyer, and I teach businesspeople and lawyers to do better in my courses on tech contracts. One of the key lessons is: “Ask better questions.” This webinar offers questions you should ask about your data—questions for your lawyer, contract manager, vendor, or for yourself.
