‘Terms of Service’ for Smart Developers
Event on 2015-10-20 19:00:00
A smart relationship isn't just about steering clear of Ashley Madison. In New Media terms it's about a "Terms of Service Agreement," or ToS; a set of ‘rules and regulations’ users agree to when using your app or visiting a website. Most people ignore the Terms of Service and click "Agree" just to get to the next page. But what does it mean to a digital media developer and how can it improve the relationship with your users? If you're feeling a little 'ToS frustrated' then it's time to get some relationship counselling from our very own Mr. Lonelyhearts! On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, lawyer and 3-time presenter Adam Herstein will help you understand what to include in your tech service's Terms of Service agreement and what you can expect in return. If you build web sites, operate an online business, create apps, use IT or digital media to reach your customers, then Tuesday's session is for you!
