I have been working on a NT 12.19 Web Server app that will be a patient registry for a cancer research project. It is time to sign an agreement with the external company. The app will be in two parts, one in the USA and one in Australia. I want to be sure we don't run afoul of privacy laws, etc. This is my first external consulting job and want to be sure I cover my butt!
I received an initial agreement in January which I did not sign as it was too one-sided. I received a revision today. While better, I still have issues with "inventions and creative works", liability, being assigned to subsidiaries, affiliates, etc. My biggest concern is that the company assume all liability as I'm acting as a contractor. I don't know if that is unreasonable or not.
Can anyone offer any advice, words of wisdom, things to not agree to?
