IT Law Firm in Hampshire

Based in Hampshire, our expert IT solicitors and lawyers regularly support businesses across the South, including major tech hubs such as London and Reading.

Software as a Service (SaaS) Agreements

SaaS is an increasingly popular software licensing and delivery model. It provides customers with immediate access to cloud-based apps on a pay-as-you-go basis and makes the delivery and management of software much more efficient for providers.

Before licensing a SaaS application, a SaaS agreement should be put in place covering license types (per-user, usage-based, etc.), fees, contract duration, SLAs (service level agreements), data protection and management, intellectual property ownership, renewals, license terminations, and more. Agreeing terms protects both parties and helps ensure a successful customer-provider relationship.

At Scott Bailey, our expert IT solicitors can assist you with drafting, negotiating or reviewing SaaS agreements that protect your business.

Software Licensing Agreements

Whether you are dealing with SaaS licenses, perpetual software licenses, or anything in between, one thing remains the same – you should always have a software licensing agreement in place.

A software licensing agreement protects software providers and their customers by clearly setting out each party’s obligations, usage rights and limitations (how the software can be used), fees, intellectual property rights, warranties, liability limitations, termination conditions, and support and maintenance provisions.

Scott Bailey’s Corporate and Commercial Law team are experts at drafting, negotiating and reviewing commercial contracts. Drawing on their extensive experience, our highly skilled solicitors can help you tailor software licensing agreements to meet your business needs.

Website Development Agreements

Designing and implementing websites is often a complex process. Website development agreements clearly define the project’s scope in a legally binding contract, ensuring that the work is completed according to the agreed specifications and preventing out-of-scope requests resulting in spiralling costs for the website developer. Agreeing the specification and delivery process at the outset lays the foundations for a successful website development project and a positive agency-client relationship.

Website development agreements cover a range of aspects, including but not limited to:

  • Project Scope
  • Pricing
  • Schedule
  • Process, including changes and revisions
  • Client’s Responsibilities
  • IP (Intellectual Property)
  • Support and Maintenance
  • Dispute Resolution and Termination Clauses

Speak to our IT solicitors today to find out how we can support you with creating robust website development agreements that protect your business.

Website Terms and Conditions

Providing terms and conditions on your website protects your business and helps ensure compliance with data protection and consumer regulations, including GDPR and the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Ts and Cs serve a range of purposes, including defining key terms used on your website, governing what users can do, limiting your liability, outlining your intellectual property rights, explaining how you use personal data, and setting out commerce-specific terms, such as payment terms, refund and return policies, delivery terms, and subscription management.

No two businesses are the same. Using template terms and conditions may leave you vulnerable. At Scott Bailey, our expert team provides tailored terms and conditions at affordable prices, giving you the best possible protection. Contact us today to get started.
