My Terms Of Service: Demystifying The Agreements That We Sign
Tuesday, October 17th from 1:00pm
What are we really agreeing to when we check an "I Agree" box in terms of service agreements? This workshop will take a close look at the ubiquitous checkbox and examine what we sacrifice for convenience and access to our digital world.
Participants will leave with:
A better understanding of terms of service agreements
Practical ways to take charge of their digital footprint
Approaches to teaching patrons about privacy
