Our Story

Our mission is to help facilitate transparency in commercial relationships by giving you a way to quickly understand what a contract means and how it stacks up against other companies within an industry.

Who is TermScout?

A team of lawyers, engineers, and business people who believe that knowledge is power.  We’re scouts who read terms and other contracts, providing truthful, simple, and objective reports and summaries to help you make educated decisions about what companies you want to do business with. 

What Does TermScout Deliver?

We developed the first non-biased ratings and review system for contracts across a spectrum of industries and categories. We compare these contracts to see which companies have the most customer-friendly terms and report our findings to you. You won’t find opinions or pay-to-play reviews in our reports. We only report the facts. We alert you to the gotcha provisions in the fine print and shine a spotlight on contracts that are favorable for the customer. Armed with the knowledge of TermScout, you can fairly decide if you are ok with the terms and conditions you are agreeing to with the click of your mouse or the stroke of your pen.

Why does TermScout exist?

“We started this company because we were tired of seeing businesses take advantage of their customers through “gotcha” provisions in the fine print. We knew that businesses wouldn’t make their contracts better until there was a good reason, so we created that reason.”

Otto Hanson, Founder & CEO

“We’re empowering people with information that they wouldn’t otherwise have to help them make better decisions.”

Peter Fatianow, Co-Founder and COO
