End User License Agreement (EULA)
Why you need an End User License Agreement (EULA)
End User License Agreements (EULAs) are essential if you have a piece of intellectual property (IP), e.g. software, that you need to protect. It grants the user permission to do something that might otherwise be considered an infringement of copyright law. The perfect EULA gives the software developer peace of mind that their product is safe and free from misuse.
What is an End User License Agreement (EULA)?
A EULA gives the buyer of your software the licence to use it, while also ensuring it is not misused, resold, or copied. It also gives you (as the owners of the IP) the ability to exclude or limit your liability and the right to sue the user if they don’t comply with the terms of the agreement.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who is the end user in a EULA?
A: The end user is the party that pays a fee (to the developer/supplier) to download or install a copy of the software.
Q: What is the difference between a EULA and a SaaS agreement?
A: A EULA is most commonly used when the end user is going to download or copy a piece or software. Even though the software is in the hands of the end user, the EULA ensures the developer/publisher retain intellectual property rights. Whereas a SaaS Agreement is used in cloud-based services where no software is being downloaded or copied.

This is a 'Forever template'
We will continually update this template with the frequent Microsoft updates such as CSP and other flow down terms, plus we will update the relevant terms to ensure you can claim as many rebates as possible, and get recognised by Microsoft such as CPoR, (Claims Partner of Record) DPoR (Digital Partner of Record), and PAL (Partner Admin Link).
We will also continually update this template as the law changes, for example, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the effects of Brexit on our laws, as we untangle ourselves from the European Union.
