What is a Pro Developer Software Development Agreement

A Pro Developer Software Development Agreement is a legal agreement that defines the relationship between two parties in relation to development of software or an app – a customer and a software developer.

The Pro Developer Software Development Agreement sets out the specifications for the development, the customer’s rights in the software and restrictions on using it, a timetable for delivery, acceptance testing, pricing, warranties from the customer and developer, rules for changing the project, how personal data will be treated, liability, insurance and termination.

This Pro Developer Software Development Agreement does not include escrow provisions which may nevertheless be requested by the customer. An escrow provision ensures, for the customer,  the continuity of  software maintenance, even if the  developer goes out of business or fails to maintain and update the code. An escrow provision is included in the Pro Customer Software Development Agreement if you need it.

When should a Pro Developer Software Development Agreement be used?
