Today's consumers expect quick, cost-effective, and user-friendly service along with access to a wide range of goods and services. However, the speed and volume at which businesses must now move makes transactions open to more potential risk. Both gig economy and online marketplace transactions begin with a contract—the Terms of Service that govern the users’ interaction with your marketplace.

However, your marketplace’s high volume of signers leaves it open to even more risk. If asked, would you be able to prove that a customer explicitly agreed to your Terms of Use? Could you recognize what versions of your agreements have been signed, when they were signed, and what type of notice your customers received prior? If not, you're in danger of being "lawyer hacked."
