This CLE webinar will guide business and technology counsel in drafting contracts for customers of cloud computing services. The panel will focus on the key terms in these contracts and discuss how they differ from traditional software license terms. We will address some of the most common mistakes attorneys make in cloud computing contracts.

Description

The panel will also outline the three key cloud computing models: Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). We will focus in particular on SaaS, but we will explain the issues at stake in all three and discuss how they differ and how they're similar.

The panel will focus in particular on:

  • Data privacy and security
  • Service levels and SLAs
  • Other performance objectives
  • Warranties
  • Termination and transition assistance
  • Indemnities re IP, data breach and other issues
  • Limits of liability
  • Data ownership and control

Our authoritative panel will explain all these issues and more, along with best practices for drafting agreements for each model.
