Legal Role in iTunes Connect

Who can enter into contracts?

iTunes Connect users with the Legal role can enter into contracts on behalf of your organization, provided they have the legal authority to do so. Users with the Admin role can view contract terms, including downloading the contract PDF, but cannot accept them on iTunes Connect, unless they also have the Legal role.

Can I make myself a Legal user?

No. You cannot edit your own account to grant yourself the Legal user role. You can grant the Legal role to another user in your organization, or have another Admin user grant the Legal role to your account in Users and Roles.

Do I need an iTunes Store account to be a Legal user?

Yes, your iTunes Connect Apple ID must also exist as an iTunes Store account Apple ID, with a current credit card on file. If you don’t have an iTunes Store account Apple ID, you will need to download iTunes and create one.

How do I create a new iTunes Connect user with the Legal role?

Before you can assign the Legal role to a new iTunes Connect user, you must first create the user with another role. When creating this new user, be sure to use an Apple ID that also exists as an iTunes Store account, with a current credit card on file. Have the new user accept the iTunes Connect Terms and Conditions and activate the new account. Once the new user has activated their account, an Admin user can assign them the Legal role.

When a user is assigned the Legal role, they will receive an email prompting them to sign in and accept a Legal Certification, stating that they are authorized to enter into contractual agreements. After they have accepted the Legal Certification, they will be able to enter into contracts in iTunes Connect.

Who can provide and change the contact information for my company?

I can view contracts on iTunes Connect, but do not have the option to accept them. What’s wrong?

iTunes Connect users with the Admin role can view contract terms, including downloading the contract PDF, but cannot accept them on iTunes Connect, unless they also have the Legal role. You can add the Legal role to a user with an iTunes Store account with a current credit card on file in Users and Roles.
