Dino Tsibouris,

Companies collect and use personal information to provide goods and services to their customers, and we willingly give it to them. New laws regulate how companies use personal information and require certain steps to be taken if the company fails to keep our information secure.

We will learn what laws govern the use of personal information and what a privacy statement means - what it covers. We will also look at the importance of contracts that ensure compliance with these laws and consider what the contracts should say to provide the most protection. We'll also discuss the latest law addressing SPAM and spyware and how it impacts you.

Dino Tsibouris is an attorney who focuses his practice on e-commerce, technology and privacy law and represents numerous start ups and fortune 100 companies. Mr. Tsibouris has worked in both corporate and large law firm environments. He is also a regular consultant to the State of Ohio on e-government and e-records matters.

Join us to learn how the law governs technology and the information your company uses, as well as your own.
