PR agencies need to navigate complex issues when it comes to compliance with privacy and technology matters for the work performed for clients. Failure to adhere to these laws can trip indemnification obligations in client contracts, as well as give rise to serious violations of laws with equally serious consequences.

- Privacy best practices and recommendations for leveraging data in a privacy-compliant manner.
- Concerns from the client’s perspective.
- Guidance for licensing, developing, and protecting your interest in technology agreements.
