Bird & Bird has launched an iPad app covering commonly asked legal questions relating to cloud computing services across 11 jurisdictions.
Whether you are a supplier or a user of cloud services, this app covers the main issues you need to think about when setting up a cloud service and answers your questions on what you need to do to ensure you are compliant.
The app reviews issues of consumer protection, data protection, data portability, intellectual property, liability, security and the use of the cloud by the public sector.
Cloud computing services are inherently non-geographical but they are subject to legal rules on a country-by-country basis. This leads to complexities in understanding the legal environment that apply to cloud services provision. In order to give some clarity to this complex position Bird & Bird has developed a Cloud Computing App which provides short answers to a range of the key legal issues associated with cloud service provision on a country-by-country basis.
