Software Asset Management (SAM) EULA check.

End User Licence Agreement (EULA).

Agreed to the T&Cs and cancellation policy without actually reading them first? While that might be standard for consumers, this is an absolute no-go for businesses. 

When purchasing software, each End User Licence Agreement (EULA) has to be gone through with a fine-tooth comb as even minor infringements could be very expensive no matter if the software has been bought 1,000 times or only once.

Software Asset Management (SAM) EULA check – What does it mean?

An End User Licence Agreement (EULA) defines the contractually binding agreement of the software user to comply with the vendor’s terms of use. By accepting the EULA, a legally binding contract is concluded.

How can Bechtle-Comsoft help?

It’s not uncommon for the legal department to have to carefully check the conditions of use for newly purchased software, but they often lack the resources to do so. Our experts help you evaluate the commercial use of defined software, taking into account existing and valid licence terms of use as well as the EULA.

Our approach:

  • Compliance report and risk assessment
  • Review of the software used / the planned use of software in accordance with the valid licence terms of use / EULA
  • Analysis and evaluation of potential risks when using the software in the company
  • Neutral correspondence with the software vendors to obtain licence-relevant information and the currently applicable terms of use
  • Proactive notification of customers in the event of changes to licensing models, metrics or terms of use (as far as possible)
  • Recommendations for and identification of alternatives
  • Compliance wrap-up report.
