Some organizations have implemented Single Sign-On (SSO) without properly understanding the legal risks, providing the education to manage those risks, or putting in place the appropriate legal processes and documents. Such processes and documents should be in place and accepted by all of the SSO participants BEFORE utilizing SSO technologies.
My “sister company”, Clareity Security, has added a number of important Single Sign-On (SSO) resources to its web site, especially for MLS operators, brokerages, and real estate software and settlement service providers implementing SSO. The most recent addition is a Single Sign-On Legal Compliance paper, prepared in consultation with noted attorney John H. Rees. Clareity Security is releasing this document to encourage real estate organizations implementing SSO to take the appropriate legal and business steps prior to implementation. Note that that document and the sample contract language are provided only as a resource, and are not intended to substitute for and do not constitute legal advice.
