Always have a contract checked!
It is always advisable to have a contract checked by qualified lawyers. It doesn't matter if it is a supply, maintenance or developmet (hardware / software) contract - a wrongly worded contract can cost you 1000s or even your business and reputation. Search for 'contract checking services' - it is more cost-effective your might think.

Re: What About Data Breaches?
Good catch!  Yes; with all the furore over data breaches today, this should be a high profile SLA.  Thanks.  Bennett

What About Data Breaches?
This is quite the comprehensive checklist that any decision maker in any IT dept. should have handy, but I might also add that it should also include and spell out in no uncertain terms the  client's rights and responsibilities in the event the vendor's servers are hacked and data is breached.  All too often when this happens it is the innocent client (and its clients) who bears the brunt of a breach.  As long as we're spelling out/negotiating a memorandum of understanding between the parties, we may as well add data breaches while we're at it.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
