Contract Intelligence uses mappings to extract provisions from uploaded documents. For Contract Intelligence to do this, you must define the types of document you expect it to receive. For example, you might define a master service agreement, a non-disclosure agreement, or a construction quitclaim. For each agreement type, you must map for extraction the provisions you anticipate in the agreement.  

Contract Intelligence extracts three types of provision:

  • Fundamental terms, which are properties inherent to all contracts, such as execution and expiration dates, parties, contract value, and so forth. 
  • Standard terms, which are conventional provisions that are useful to many customers, but are not inherent to all contracts. For example, a commodity vendor may have little use for publicity terms or an intellectual property clause.
  • Premium terms, a large body of specialized provisions that apply to specific industries and use cases, such as a tenant's right to sublet, or a requirement of notification on a data breach.

Provisions, in turn, can be of two types: fields and clauses. A field contains some measurable, normal property: a date, a percentage, a duration, or a cash value. Clauses do not have a measurable characteristic; for example, a stipulation, an agreement, or a representation of fact. 

Access provisions through the Data Extraction Setup tab in the left navigation bar. Manage provisions using the Provision Library.


Fundamental Terms

Contract Intelligence extracts these fundamental terms (if possible) from all contracts it reviews: 

  • Agreement Title
  • Parties
  • Effective Date
  • Commencement Date
  • Original Expiration Date
  • Termination Notice
  • Renewal Type
  • Renewal Period
  • Renewal Notice
  • Renewal Limit 
  • Signatures
  • Notice
  • Notice Address
  • Related Master Agreement Name
  • Total Contract Value

These terms are required because without them a contract is not effective, and they are available for every Contract Intelligence extraction. 

Standard Terms

You can select from the following standard terms (fields) as your needs dictate:

  • Audit Rights
  • Pricing/Billing Frequency
  • Data Security Breach Notification
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Exclusivity/Not granted
  • Exclusivity/Required
  • Governing Law
  • Indemnification Provision
  • Non-Solicitation Period
  • Pricing/Payment Model
  • Pricing/Payment Terms

These terms are not essential to all contracts but are quite common. 

Premium Terms

Contract Intelligence offers a premium library of over 1,200 provisions for extraction. These high-value extractions are specialized for several industries and improve the granularity and specificity of extractions.


Premium terms are not accessible for attorney review with Verified Extraction. If a contract mapping contains only premium terms, Verified Extraction will not be available. If a mapping contains a mix of terms, Verified Extraction will be available, but not for premium terms.
