DescriptionWhen contracting with a third-party educational technology vendors, university representatives are charged with “redlining” terms of service (ToS) to ensure compliance with laws and policies. Universities are transparent with their institutional privacy policies, but not with specific negotiation processes and final contracted ToSs. In this session, the facilitators will brief the process of university negotiations of third-party app contracts, and the experience of procuring copies of university contracts. Participants will examine and synthesize the most meaningful information from several university ToS examples and collaboratively devise suggestions for what students and instructors should know about their use of third-party apps. (Facilitated by Lindsay Hansen, Assistant Professor of Practice, University of Arizona & Mark Felix, Director of Instructional Support, University of Arizona)
AbstractThis information literacy resource was created by participants and facilitators during a workshop titled "Student privacy & third-party apps : Examining a university’s Terms of Service" at CLAPS 2018. Through reading actual contracts between technology vendors and the University or Arizona, the group of academic librarians, library administrators, and faculty developers synthesized the steps to take and information to look for in these contracts to better understand how student and worker information is collected and used by third-party vendors.
