Have you started providing software as a service but don’t have a SaaS agreement in place to protect it from unauthorized use? Create one ASAP! If you find drafting legal documents challenging, DoNotPay can teach you everything you need to know about SaaS agreements, how legal documents work, and how to write any contract without a pricey lawyer!
A Software as a Service (SaaS) agreement outlines the terms and conditions of a software delivery model. It is a contract between the app developer and the app user and contains all the rules and regulations for using the product. SaaS agreements usually incorporate a service level agreement (SLA) as well.
By paying a service fee, the user can access and use the software. SaaS agreements are usually subscription-based because the software is cloud-hosted. Users have restricted software access, and the provider is responsible for managing the infrastructure and service. Although each customer can access the software remotely, they cannot modify or control it.
There are a few key differences between a SaaS agreement and a standard software license:
|SaaS agreement||Standard software license|
|Users do not receive physical or installed software. They can access the software on the cloud||For a specified fee, the user receives a physical or installed copy of the software|
|Users have no rights after the termination of the contract||User doesn’t lose the access rights even if the contract has ended|
If you want to draw up a SaaS agreement yourself, you can consult a lawyer or look up contract templates online. This should give you a basic idea of what to cover. Most SaaS agreements include the following information:
|Key elements||Brief explanation|
|Access rights and users||
|Liability and penalty||
|Scope of license||
|Service level agreement (SLA)||
|Terms and conditions||
Since online templates are generic, make sure you customize the contract according to your specific requirements. If your agreement is missing a crucial clause or has incorrect information, it will be considered void.
If you’re providing software as a service, you will require other contracts in place, such as:
- Intellectual property agreements
- Non-disclosure agreements
- Employment agreements
- Service level agreements
- Master service agreements
- Security contracts
- Trademark policies
- Privacy policies
A SaaS contract is legally binding. If any party violates the agreement, they risk facing legal and financial consequences.
It is imperative that both parties mitigate risks and fully disclose how to treat any breach of contract. A SaaS vendor can claim financial compensation, terminate the contract, or file legal action against the user if they violate the agreement.
In case a vendor violates the agreement, they risk facing legal repercussions if the user sues them in court.
