Today it is virtually impossible to imagine modern economic life without information technology (IT).
Regardless of whether IT is one of your company's core competencies or only a necessary element of your business, nowadays, no company can do business without a modern and efficient IT system.
In the area of IT law, there are different types of contracts. There are, for example, contracts
- for the provision of hardware and software,
- for the creation of individual software, and
- for IT services (such as consulting, maintenance and support contracts, and hosting contracts).
Finally, there are special forms of IT contracts, for example for freeware, open source software, software as a service (SaaS) and application service providing (ASP).
Depending on the IT contract, various types of contract regulated by law (e.g. purchase contract, service contract, rental contract) may be applicable. The legal provisions always apply if nothing to the contrary has been agreed in the IT contract with regard to a specific issue.
One core area of IT law are all types of IT agreements and contracts concluded with respect to any kind of IT products or IT services, including the area of e-commerce. WINHELLER can assist you in drafting all types of those contracts in a legally compliant way. These may include:
