FAQs for the Cloud Terms

Can I use my own Attachments?

  • Yes. You may link to or attach your own SLA, Support Policy, AUP, DPA or other Attachments by reference on your Cloud Terms Cover Page – guidance here.

Why are the Support Policy and the Acceptable Use Policy provided as "examples"?

  • Because of the high degree of variability in these policies, Bonterms provides these forms as “examples” under the Resources tab and not as Standard Agreements. You are free to modify and use these examples as you see fit.

Do you have a version of the Cloud Terms for posting on a website?
