Installation and integration
ClauseBase is modern cloud-based software, which does not require any installation or involvement of your IT department. A modern, standards-based browser is all you need to get started — essentially any browser but Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Our software even runs on mobile devices.
Note: the highest performance is reached with the Chromium/Webkit-based browsers, such as Chrome, Safari, Opera, Vivaldi or Brave.
in the cloud
Our software runs on a managed server hosted in a modern datacenter located in Brussels (Belgium), protected by
multiple layers of encryption
secure telecommunication connections
high-availability service levels
ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certificates
The software itself contains several security features to protect the confidentiality of data:
opt-in two-factor authentication for all accounts, using industry-standard time-based one-time passwords
enforced https:// and wss:// communication
"salted" hashed passwords, based on the BCrypt and SHA-512 algorithms
tracking of failed login attempts
protection against CSRF-attacks
generated (.PDF, .DOCX or .ZIP) documents are deleted from the server environment as soon as practicable
protection against SQL-attacks
Generated .docx and .pdf files are very short-lived on our servers — essentially being deleted asap after the user created down.
In addition, you can granularly specify that certain data (e.g., old working documents) should be automatically deleted after a customizable period.
ClauseBase is an open system that can easily integrate with other software, through its advanced connectivity features, including batch uploading ("API").
Through this API, developers can interrogate the server of ClauseBase, and send relevant data that will then result in MS Word or PDF files. Such functionality can, for example, be used to generate legal documents in batch, or to allow end-users to generate legal documents from within software packages that lack advanced text editing capabilities.
ClauseBase documents can also be embedded inside your own website, through so-called "iframes".
In the near future, we expect to offer connections with popular content management systems, customer relationship software and accounting packages.
Granular access rights can be imposed on all clauses and templates, in order to reflect your working practices.
Do you want to give all lawyers access to all content, across all departments? Or perhaps you want to segment access per department? Maybe grant access to lawyers in cross-departmental industry groups?
Protect your intellectual property
When you create intelligent clauses in ClauseBase, you are able to export them to MS Word, but the different forms the clause can take based on that intelligence is decided in ClauseBase.
This means that when lawyers leave the organisation, it is not realistic for them to take a lot of intellectual property of the organisation with them. Furthermore, if they do export a lot of clauses to MS Word, administrators can track this behaviour.
Under no circumstances do we want you to feel like you are locked in with ClauseBase due to the unique intelligence you added to your clauses.
At any point in time, you can create a complete back-up of all clauses and documents in your library, both with ClauseBase intelligence and without it.
