Escrow contracts by Deposix

Deposix's contracts are legally tested and reflect the solid legal knowledge of the escrow specialist. Deposix offers different types of escrow contracts which can be established according to your specific situation:

  1. Individual contract (TRE): one software manufacturer, one piece of software, one client/user
  2. Licence provider master agreement (TTD): one software manufacturer, one piece of software, any number of clients/users
  3. “Multi” licence provider master agreement (MLT): one software manufacturer, any number of software products, any number of clients/users per software product
  4. Licence holder master agreement (TTL): one client/user, any number of software manufacturers, one piece of software per software manufacturer

All contracts can of course be tailored to your specific requirements with the help of your legal adviser and are available in English or German.

Benefits: Deposix compared to notaries

Increased safety: Deposix has markedly higher safety standards. The source code will, amongst other things, be deposited in accordance with the official guidelines of the Association of Indemnity Insurers (VdS). Furthermore, Deposix has established the so-called “Chinese Wall of Escrow” for the escrow, meaning the separation of physical safety from process control/responsibility of deposited software.


Greater technical know-how: Unlike notaries, Deposix tests the material before the escrow is established through a comprehensive initial inspection and – upon request – through additional technical verification.


Greater expertise and superior processes through specialisation: From the beginning, Deposix, has specialised in software escrow. Our clients benefit from our years of experience and escrow expertise. We offer comprehensive contract management, supporting the escrow parties during all phases of the escrow lifecycle, including regular updates actively initiated by Deposix.
