On the one hand, it is important that the services of cloud providers are described accurately, on the other hand, it has to be clarified which security standards and access barriers need to be considered when editing (particularly sensitive personal) data.
To ensure that the provider can provide sufficient capacity available at any time, the definition of the scope of services is essential, that in case of problems between users and providers, it is settled which rights and obligations they have. In addition, a possible change to another provider has to be ensured, for example, by arranging a backup in a common format.
