Data Ownership:

The client owns all user data residing within the application and collected through the course of the application. If the application is developed by or for the client, the client also exclusively owns all source code to the application.


During the course of the contract in the event that Outflow Technologies fails to fulfill the minimum service levels, after reasonable efforts on part of the client to resolve such, the client may request a 3rd party to mediate to resolve the matter. If this does not resolve the situation, the client may request to terminate the contract.

Outflow Technologies must provide for any termination or transfer a smooth transition with minimal downtime for the client. All data must be delivered to the client within a reasonable timeframe acceptable to the client.


The Statement of Work (SOW) would be drawn up from a thorough requirements analysis of the target application. The SOW would dictate what modifications if any would be made to the above SLA for the specific application.

The contact will be for a one- to five-year term based on the term selected by the client and agreed to by the provider.
