By memorizing the source code with the Chamber of Commerce`s fiduciary department, a company can prove without a doubt that it was the creator of the software invention at some point. The purpose of the CCSC Model Submission Agreement is to facilitate the application by the parties of arbitration proceedings in ongoing disputes for which the parties have not previously agreed on an arbitration clause. Bidding agreements are concluded after the dispute has arisen and contain a reference to the disputed issue. A standard submission agreement is a useful tool for parties negotiating an existing dispute and considering arbitration as an alternative to court proceedings. The Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce is the only national provider to provide a fiduciary service for the secure storage of software source code and documentation. We are an impartial fiduciary agent who works between the client and the software provider to ensure that the source code is available to the buyer at all times. This avoids a potential risk, so that source code or other important documents are available to the buyer when a critical software provider goes out of business or goes bankrupt. The agreements are available in English, Swedish and Russian. The group trust agreement can be entered into between the software provider, the fiduciary agent and several software users. The group trust agreement is recommended for cases where a similar product is sold to multiple customers, for example.B. Financial management software or CRM.
