Types of Escrow Agreement

Multiple licensee agreement

This is an agreement between a Licensor, multiple Licensees, and TIMG escrow services where, contract costs can be spread amongst all licensees for cost effectiveness.

Custodial agreement

This is an agreement between a software developer and TIMG escrow services where we securely store copies of source code or any type of intellectual property. This provides peace of mind for the developer.

Custom agreement

This is an agreement that is heavily edited to meet the specific requirements of parties wanting to articulate unique terms and conditions.

How does the technology escrow program work?

Agreement sent to TIMG Escrow

When a Licensor updates the software that is covered by the escrow agreement, a copy is sent to TIMG escrow services.

Secure storage and processing

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.

Restricted Access

All deposits are stored in environmentally-controlled, highly secure, state-of-the-art vaults. All access to these vaults is restricted and accurately monitored.

Frequently asked Questions and Answers about Online Escrow

Online escrow | Intellectual Property Protection

An Escrow agreement essentially provides a protection mechanism between parties. This protection can take the form of guaranteed access to a version of software for which someone has paid a license, or it could relate to the determination of terms and conditions for the transfer of ownership of a property. The Escrow agreement will include a “non-invested” and neutral third-party known as the escrow holder. The third-party escrow holder will have the responsibility of securing and maintaining the integrity of the agreement as determined by the two “invested” parties.

In essence, an Escrow agreement involves a neutral third party who ensures that a transaction between two parties can be executed. These types of agreements can include mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property transactions where the preservation of access to software source code is ensured and real estate transactions.
