An End User License Agreement (EULA), which is also referred to as a software license agreement, is a legal contract between the manufacturer and/or the author and the user of that application. Think of it as like a rental agreement for an app’s users. EULA lawyers will detail how the software can and cannot be used and any restrictions that the manufacturer imposes. Sometimes called "shrinkwrap" or "click-through" agreements, they legally bind users to a number of strict terms – and yet you never sign your name. Importantly, the EULA protects the manufacturer from liability if the software is used in an intended way.
Running a website implicates a series of rules, like privacy laws and various intellectual property concerns, so it’s smart to see if your website complies and protects everything.
