Software Beta Testing Agreement

This is only right for “duration of beta testing”. You must indicate the initial duration of your beta test, after the end of the license granted. If your beta test is not timed, you should also mention the test extensions and how they are advertised. In addition, you should define here the right of both parties to terminate this agreement and for what reasons. As a general rule, beta testing agreements give both parties the right to terminate the agreement against notice, for any reason or for no reason at all. Here is an example of Talend: under this clause, you indicate the type of license granted to the tester and the restrictions that can be imposed on him. In addition, the developer must indicate what constitutes “acceptable use” of the product. For a beta test, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, and restricted license is a frequent choice, with the usual limits of copying, reverse engineering, and distribution. When it comes to the use of the product, it should be tied to its documentation and limited by live data and environments. Here`s an example from Atari: this is an agreement between ________ In this case, users cannot claim that they were not aware of the agreement and that they are bound by their conditions. At the end of the trial period or at the request of the company, the tester must return within ten days the original and all copies of the software and all materials associated with the company and remove all parts of the software from the computer`s memory.
