Today, we updated one of Tech Contract Academy’s key sample contract forms: the Hybrid Cloud Agreement with Professional Services. It’s available to you, along with the rest of our forms, at the Contracts Page.
This is the first update based on best practices and changes featured in the third edition of David Tollen’s book, The Tech Contracts Handbook (ABA Publishing, 2021).
The Hybrid Cloud form is for cloud services companies, particularly SaaS, particularly if they provide add-on software for on-premise use and/or and professional services, alongside their main offering. Today’s key edits are:
- Updated data management terms, including provider-friendly provisions addressing the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA);
- A revised injunctions clause, with new language meant to maximize chances of getting an injunction; and
- Improved warranty disclaimers.
This is just the start, so stay tuned — and watch for blog posts addressing these and other topics.
