Delivering software as a service, what is legally required?
Software as a Service (SaaS) is getting increasingly popular. Without having to distribute copies, it is easier to maintain software. Additionally, illegal copying is impossible when software is offered as a service. But when deploying software as a service, some legal documents are required.
If you combine your service with those of others (for example, you use third-party APIs to enhance your service) you may need a processor’s agreement to formalize the use of personal data collected through your service with these others’ services.
Finally, should you want others to resell your service to their own customers, don’t forget to get a proper SaaS reselling agreement in place.
