The same apprehensions arise when you plan to run your software business project. Start-ups often use external services for web development, design and quality assurance. However, you may be concerned about the legal security of authors when it comes to sharing your idea with so many people. We have decided to briefly explain the legal means to protect your software from leaks when you hire an independent QS team. With this information in mind, you keep cooperation safe and results-oriented. The meaning of the term "Service Level Agreement" (SLA) is already clear when it is broken down into its elements and translated into German: "Service Level" means "Service quality of service" and "Agreement" for "Agreement." An ALS is therefore nothing more than a contract with a service provider that regulates the scope and quality of a given service. SOWs and MSA. A work statement (SOW) is usually a document that is attached to another document, often called the Master Services Agreement (MSA). The MSA is generally the defining document for the entire relationship, while the SOW generally looks at the specifics of a project or volume of work. MSA therefore regulates the entire relationship between the parties. The service delivery process is not included. You may be interested in signing a master service if you`ve never worked with an agency before.
However, if you do not have an MSA, it is important to outline all the legal terms in the work statement. If you hire independent QS engineers for your project, make sure the company is ready to follow NDA policies with customers. Such a confidentiality agreement prevents the company from using your product idea, design, functionality, etc. In addition, it prohibits SAQ engineers from presenting their work publicly. It is a legal document between two or more parties, containing confidential information provided by the company and the customer. The main objective of the agreement is to protect private information from actions against third parties. It protects your business idea from copyright infringement. The NDA can be unilateral (unilateral), bilateral (signed between a contractor and a client) and multilateral (several parties involved). The shape is usually individual. The parties usually develop them after the first discussion on the scope of the project.
In any case, it is important to sign the NDA agreement before the details of the project are announced. For the recipient, the reason the service item could not function is of minor importance. It is primarily interested in maximum availability, minimal response time to errors, maximum performance and reliability, so that its business processes are not interrupted. Therefore, when concluding an ALS, he will always endeavour to obtain full guarantees on these points. The service provider must indicate the price of this quality of service. In addition, penalties may be agreed for non-compliance with a particular test.
