Single User or Three Party Escrow Agreement
The ‘Three Party Escrow Agreement’ or ‘Single User Escrow Agreement’ is an agreement between Escrow Alliance, the supplier and one end user.
The ‘Three Party Source Code Escrow Agreement’ or ‘Single User Escrow Agreement’ is also simply named ‘Source Code Escrow’ depending on who is referring to the agreement.
The escrow agreement is put in place so that an end user of licensed software can access source code, build instructions and other related materials in the event that the supplier is no longer able to maintain its support service, discontinues business or for other reasons as set out in the Escrow Agreement is unable to fulfill its commitment to the end user.
Escrow Alliance works for both the end user and the software provider by delivering sample software escrow agreements, physical and legal protection of escrow deposits and other escrow related services. In addition, Escrow Alliance conducts supplementary source code inspections which give a qualitative understanding of the deposited materials.
