I most instances, I would specify in the contract that the laws of the State of your principal office and business operations apply to the contract.

Do beta testers need a special terms of service?

I am currently developing a software product and I am looking to have beta testers test out the product. I want to ensure that I have all the necessary legal documents and agreements in place before I allow any beta testers to access the product. I am wondering if beta testers need a special terms of service that is different from the standard terms of service agreement that would be given to customers when they purchase the product.

Merry A.

Answered Jan 16, 2024

In both instances, you should incorporate some type of non-disclosure agreement. For beta testers, you need to address whether you are paying the beta testers in any way, shape, or form, such as a discount for the final software.
