Fine Print 3


In this the third extract from an IT System Provider’s Terms and Conditions the Seller is seeking to place obligations on the Buyer. Nothing unusual in that  and it is good practice to detail who is responsible for each aspect. But do you think the following clause would be accepted by a buyer. 

“The Customer shall provide such office accommodation, computer equipment, office machinery and general facilities, staff, papers and documents as XXX shall from time to time reasonably require in connection with any aspect of providing the System.”

I can tell you that this clause and many other similar clauses are accepted, often without question.

What would you do if you were confronted with this clause.

We will let you know what we think after we have issued all the extracts but in the meantime we would love to hear your thoughts. What would be your next move? Please let us know.
