The increasing use of cloud services to store data raises many questions about the management of your digital heritage.

ACCAN and Digital Heritage have created resources to help your successors address posthumous contractual issues. Significant problems may arise where you are a one-person business seeking to pass on your data and processes – especially if you (or your heirs) are dealing with a cloud service provider whose contractual terms prohibit the transfer of passwords, etc – so you should ensure that the contract you are offered includes appropriate mechanisms for the preservation, protection and hand-over of your intellectual property.
