Most agreements relating to the purchase of specific service include the supplier/provider failure clause. In the event of a failure, the provider also named Depositor undertakes to provide the end customer also named Beneficiary with the required elements to guarantee continuity and maintenance of the software or system support. The implementation of an Escrow Agreement, also called escrow contract, clarifies the roles and responsibilities of each stakeholder, as well as the contractual commitments and verification steps that will be performed throughout the duration of the contract.


An Escrow Agreement consists in depositing with a third party (specialized company, escrow agent, such as Continew) sources, plans, designs, procedures allowing to reconstitute or rebuild a specific system or product.


This deposit is recommended for highly technical and long-life systems and equipments. Drawing up an Escrow Agreement 3P Contrat is particularly suited for most industrial fields. Its use makes it possible to effectively protect and guarantee specific digital assets.



Still have some question?

CONTINEW’s Support Team is there for you

When a company Beneficiary uses an external supplier Depositor , the following 6 items need to be checked to assess the supplier risk control grade.

In practical terms, the supplier Depositor deposits the constituent elements of the electronic application concerned (source codes, documents, technical files and so on) – for which he/she retains intellectual property – in order to ensure that the end user Beneficiary has access to them in cases previously defined in the release provisions of the contract or agreement.

  • Does the contract include a supplier/provider failure clause?
  • Are release clauses provisions aimed at accessing the deposit consistent with the organization’s costs and deadlines?
  • Have sources and technical files been deposited?
  • Who checked the completeness and integrity of the deposit?
  • When was the last update of product or system carried out?
  • Who is committed to the possible reuse of the deposit with the company?

Continew’s Escrow Agreement System is the answer to all these questions.
