Contracts: How To Give Your T&Cs Some TLC

  • May 22, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Dear Bootlawyers

According to the latest figures, we spend almost £0.4 billion (how much?!) a year on personal TLC. How much money, or even time, do you think is spent by startups on TLC for the most basic commercial contracts? If you guessed less than £0.4 billion and not enough time, you have won a place (once you RSVP of course!)  to the next Bootlaw to ensure that your own contracts receive a healthy dose of loving care and attention.

On Wednesday, 22 May 2013, Rupam Davé, one of our resident tech lawyers, will be leading the discussion on some of the most common types of contract that start-ups are likely to encounter. He will share tips on how to painlessly (okay, less painfully) navigate contract negotiations with large customers, avoid pitfalls when engaging consultants and save the Amazon by streamlining your terms and conditions.

RSVP here to secure your place now!

(If there is anything in particular that you’d like us to cover, please do let us know when you RSVP)

***UPDATE***

We are pleased to be welcoming David Parker of InvestHK to Bootlaw on Wednesday, 22 May 2013. David will be giving us a brief overview as to InvestHK, it’s background, mission and the opportunities available to overseas and Mainland entrepreneurs, SMEs and multinationals that wish to set up an office – or expand their existing business – in Hong Kong.

“Startups (business ventures in their earliest stage of development, i.e. within the first two years of establishment and without any parent company) are one of the world’s biggest drivers of job creation and economic growth.  Last year, 14 percent of InvestHK’s completed projects were startups. Accordingly, the Department is placing greater emphasis on attracting entrepreneur-led businesses to set up and expand in the city. Startups can introduce new technology knowhow and expertise. They bring inspiration, innovation, ideas, talented people and technology transfer to an economy and contribute to make Hong Kong more globally competitive.

Although a startup may only employ a few people at the outset, with a solid business plan it can thrive in a place like Hong Kong — the world’s freest economy — and expand rapidly. Small companies also do not have the resources to do everything inhouse — they need to outsource and partner with other local companies.”

For more on InvestHK, please visit their website.

6.30pm – Doors open, beer and networking

    Hi it would be great if you could cover the t&c's associated with storing personal data including location based personal data - i.e. knowing where people are when they login.

    This is a great coincidence - redoing all our legalese this week and wasn't sure who to ask. See you there.

    Perhaps something to cover, one thing I'm not clear on - is it possible to protect yourself completely from people suing you in another jurisdiction?

    Also, if you could cover the general costs associated with having custom tailored end-user legal agreements (T&C, privacy, usage license) drawn up, that'd be great.

      FYI by 'cover' I mean 'talk about', not 'pay for' :)

    We are set up as a company in the UK, but are mainly focused on US users. As we are in the medical field (medical algorithms) we need to be sure that we are well secured. Should our T&C's and Privacy be based on UK legislation or for safety comply with US legislation?

    I'd like to hear about T&Cs for EU cookie law, specifically for things like remarketing (easy to switch on via AdWords).

    Also, I'd love to hear your thoughts on http://www.iubenda.com, especially in relation to the above question.

    Key points regarding T&Cs when people/users sign into websites would be much appreciated.
