For a large retail corporation that manages 800+ vendors and thousands of external users, there is a constant threat of information leaks. An End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) is a way to deter theft of intellectual property and protect against legal action.
Present users who are accessing the site with a EULA that requires a digital signature before proceeding.
The premise behind this functionality is quite simple: display a EULA for the user to read and confirm that the user is in agreement with the EULA before allowing them to proceed to the site. A record of every user who has read the EULA and agreed to its terms will need to be kept for legal purposes.
- The EULA is a dynamic document that changes with the business. A new or updated EULA may be posted at any time.
- Users cannot be expected to sign the EULA upon every attempt to access the site. However, users will need to be aware of any updates to the EULA upon next access attempt.
The secondary purpose of the EULA record is for a legal record of who has accessed the site and to ensure that he or she was presented with the latest EULA at the time of login.
