Intellectual property protection
Securely store and protect your intellectual property, including precious source code, in escrow with TIMG as the trusted third party.
At TIMG we serve as a trusted, neutral third party to securely store source code for your critical software.
We can help your organisation create a customised escrow program that meets even the most complex business challenges. Your intellectual assets will be kept safe and securely accessible over the life of the escrow agreement.
Our team acts as your experienced, responsive and trustworthy partner.
Save time and money by uploading your source code directly to our servers. Nice and easy.
The pricing, terms and conditions are the same as our secure escrow agreements service. The difference with online escrow is, instead of the escrow media being couriered or posted to us, it can be uploaded directly to our servers.
Our online escrow system is designed to allow deposits to be securely uploaded directly to our data centre. The electronic format of the deposit provides a more secure transit method. The system also provides reporting and an accurate audit history through a simple web portal.
Using our online escrow service will save you time and money, plus it’s quick and easy to set up.
Our online escrow team will tailor a solution to match your business needs.
We have a variety of agreements available, designed to cover most situations. Alternatively, we can tailor-make an agreement to meet your specific needs.
When a Licensor updates the software that is covered by the escrow agreement, a copy is sent to TIMG escrow services. We process the item into our secure vaults and a receipt is issued to all parties of the agreement. This is so that, should anything ever happen to the Licensor (such as insolvency), the Licensee can (through the parameters set out in the contract) access the code and take it to another company for support and development.
All deposits are stored in environmentally-controlled, highly secure, state-of-the-art vaults. All access to these vaults is restricted and accurately monitored.
