Website Terms and Conditions

Website Terms and Conditions
Our Price:  $20.00(Exc. 20% VAT)

A selection of terms and conditions governing the use of a website.

Website terms and conditions have a number of functions. They set out the basis upon which a website and the material on a website may be used, and seek to limit or exclude the liability of the website owner. They can also be used as a convenient location for making any disclosures required by law.

This pack includes two general website T&Cs documents, and four specific website T&Cs documents, as follows:

  • Website Terms and Conditions (standard-form)
  • Website Terms and Conditions (long-form)
  • Blog Terms and Conditions
  • Social Network Terms and Conditions
  • Directory Website Terms and Conditions
  • Subscription Website Terms and Conditions
  • Linking policy

The different website terms and conditions template may be adapted for use in relation to a wide range of different kinds of website.

Where a website collects personal information from users (as most do), the terms and conditions should be used in conjunction with a privacy policy.

This pack documents are provided (by way of a download link) in zipped MS Word (.docx) format immediately following your purchase.

What are the terms of the license, in these templates, of user comments and other user materials published on the site?

Under the license as drafted in the templates, the user grants to the website publisher a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, adapt, publish, translate and distribute the user's content in any existing or future media. The right to sub-license these rights, and the right to bring an action for infringement of these rights, are also granted to the publisher.

In some cases users may be wary of such a wide grant, and you may want to use a more restrictive license.

Can these terms and conditions be used on an ecommerce site?

They can be adapted for use on an ecommerce site, but they are not sufficient on their own for such a site. For example, an online shop selling products to consumers would also need terms and conditions of sale.

What restrictions are placed upon the things that a user is allowed to post on the website?

The terms and conditions restrict the publication of illegal and unlawful material on the website, as well as material that infringes third party legal rights (e.g. copyright).

Can't find the answer to your question? Then please ask.

These free website terms and conditions may perform a number of different roles. They may be used to satisfy legal disclosure obligations, to grant users rights to use website materials, to impose acceptable use obligations, to limit (or attempt to limit) warranties and disclaim (or attempt to disclaim) liabilities, and more generally to structure the legal relationships between the website operator and users.

This terms and conditions document is identical to the standard-form version of the website terms and conditions included in the pack, except that it includes a credit/attribution clause for Contractology. If you would like to use the document without that credit/attribution clause, you should purchase the pack.
