Law Educator,I am using a 3rd party service provider which, among other things, stores my customers contact name, address, phone and email. I have found another service which is lower priced and provides more functions and features.There is no contract or End User License Agreement (EULA). It is just $300 per month, month to month.I feel I am being held hostage, they will not provide all my customer contact data, 21,201 records. So if I change I will have to pay someone to look up each person in the current system and copy and paste them into the new system. This is a large expense. They are aware of this and is how the keep current customers from leaving.Who owns the data? How do I get my records? There must be recent cases around this topic.ps Any new provider I will make sure there is a contract, EULA, I own the data and can export it to Excel.RegardsSam

I have published some apps in Apple's App Store. And, for
I have published some apps in Apple's App Store. And, for publishing apps using encryption, I have got an Encryption Registration approval from BIS ("BIS" refers to U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security).According to web page http://www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/policy-guidance/encryption/reporting#One, I need to file a annual self-classification report for every year. The web page says that "A annual self-classification report for applicable encryption commodities, software and components exported or reexported during a calendar year (January 1 through December 31) must be received by BIS and the ENC Encryption Request Coordinator no later than February 1 of the following year.". So, it seems that the report should only include things exported or reexported.And, here are my questions: (1) If one of my apps that I have published in App Store is a free (can get without money) app, should the report include this app? I don't know whether a free thing may be "exported". (2) What is the exporting and reexporting with reference to? Is it the United States? (3) What does "reexport" mean? What is the difference between it and "export"?Please answer my questions. Thanks!
FOR -BIZAW: Kindly re-read last question you answered for me
FOR RICHARD-BIZAW: Kindly re-read last question you answered for me for context as this relates to the same matter. Does a Canadian company have Nexus by virtue of doing business with U.S. customers and having a U.S. employee located in a U.S. state? If the employee with or without his employer's knowledge colluded/conspired with a 50% partner in a U.S. LLC that was a client of the Canadian company to destroy files on the LLC's hosting account, to block the other partner/officer from accessing files and features of the platform necessary for the LLC to conduct business and then unilaterally deleted the LLC's account in its entirety which destroyed valuable evidence on the server logs which would have identified who did what when -- can the Canadian company be sued and for what causes of action? Can the U.S. employee be sued and especially if he misled his employer about why these actions were taken?Now take into account that the Canadian company's TOS includes non-liability clauses and asserts thati t can cancel any account at any time for any reason in its unilateral discretion. While I recognize that this might protect them from a beach of contract claim, would it protect them from business interference, destruction of private property or evidence (the employee and likely the company knew the two partners were in a legal dispute and are now serving the offending partners separate business), collusion, economic/cyber sabotage, possibly conspiracy to commit these acts, etc?The jurisdiction clause of the TOS states that venue is in Canada. Under the circumstances or with nexus could this be changed to the U.S.? Or since the employee resides in the states could venue be changed to there?

My UK based company has been asked to complete a standard questionnaire relating to EAR and ITAR export controls by a potential client in the US. Since our business is based in the UK and not involved in either technology or related software or data, can we reasonably respond 'Not Applicable' to all the various questions about export controls and similar?
