A software as a service (SaaS) model can have many benefits for your business. It can offer greater control over the way clients access and use your software, and more practical solutions for protecting your intellectual property (IP).
If you have a SaaS business, or are thinking about a SaaS model, it is important to understand your legal obligations, including which contracts and agreements will meet your needs to reduce risk and increase protection, including user privacy.
To help you to understand your options, LegalVision hosted a free webinar on Legal 101 for SaaS Companies on Thursday, 22 July.
Jacqueline Gibson (Senior Lawyer) and Lauren McKee (Lawyer) explained:
+ What is SaaS?
+ What are your contract options?
+ Key contractual considerations for SaaS Agreements, including:
+ the difference between IP and data;
+ handling personal information and privacy;
+ options for managing risk contractually; and
+ Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
