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.

Securityin the cloud

Our software runs on a managed server hosted in a modern datacenter located in Europe, protected by

  • advanced firewalls

  • multiple layers of encryption

  • secure telecommunication connections

  • high-availability service levels

  • daily backups

  • 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

Single Sign On (SSO)

ClauseBase allows customers with an Enterprise subscription to allow users to login through Single Sign-On (SSO). We currently support Microsoft Azure, Okta, OneLogin, Salesforce and Google SAML.

Data protection

Generated .docx and .pdf files are very short-lived on our servers — essentially being deleted asap after the user created down. 

With only a few limitations, we even provide you with the possibility to generate .docx and .pdf files completely within the browser, never involving the server. This allows for even easier compliance with data protection legislation, because sensitive data will never leave a user's own computer.

In addition, you can choose to save answers fully encrypted, and granularly specify that certain data (e.g., old working documents) should be automatically deleted after a customizable period. 

Open to
other systems

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.

access rights

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.

No lock-in

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.
