"Free" Internet services are commonly integrated into teaching, research, and administration at our institutions, spurred by the ease of individuals simply clicking "I agree." Bypassing institutional procurement processes also skips controls that evaluate risk and ensure appropriate contract terms that align with policies and practices; however, even the potentially lengthy procurement process encourages clicking "I agree."

OUTCOMES: Understand that standard terms and conditions in click-through agreements create risk * Be able to distinguish higher- and lower-risk factors in a higher ed context * Learn how institutions are guiding end users to appropriate choices
