When negotiating a SaaS Cloud Services Agreement it is important to consult with a lawyer who understands the technology that is involved in the contract for indemnification purposes. Both parties to the agreement need to pay close attention to what each party is indemnifying the other for and what possibly could go wrong. Leading Cloud SaaS lawyer Andrew S. Bosin is an experienced software as a service attorney who represents both providers and end-users in contract negotiations and deals with issues such as indemnification, data privacy and data protection.
If you are an end user of a SaaS Cloud based service or product some of the legal issues that you should be concerned about are data protection and access to your data which is heightened if your SaaS Provider is outsourcing web hosting or serving to a 3rd party. With regard to access to your data, you should require in the SaaS Agreement that the Provider guarantee an up time of 99.9% in the Service Level Agreement. This way, if the service goes down repeatedly the Provider is penalized monetarily. Also, there should be a mechanism when the contract ends that you can access and retrieve your data from the SaaS Provider.
With regard to data protection, if you have very sensitive information that is being transmitted through the cloud to the SaaS provider’s servers which are hosted by a third party it is critical that you have a good fundamental understanding of how the SaaS provider or third party host is protecting and securing your data.
