Website Terms

Your website acts as the store front to your business and represents a significant investment in both time and money. As a result you should be aware that there are legal issues that can affect your website and that it is vital that you address these by including website terms and conditions.

These terms of use will set out what is expected of the visitors to your site, including your clients and or suppliers or rivals. This is necessary in many cases to establish and claim your rights in relation to the website, including intellectual property rights to the content and images on your site.

In addition to laying out your rights as a business, you should also seek to limit your liability as appropriate, whether that is by clarifying that you are not providing specific advice on the site, or by disclaiming liability for errors. Because it is almost inevitable that you will be using cookies to provide analytic data to monitor the use and success of the site and also to manage and enhance the visitor experience of your site, you will need to address your legal obligations in relation to Data Protection. This issue is usually addressed by a Privacy Policy and or a cookies policy and consent process. It is important that such policies actually reflect what you are doing with your site and have not simply been “borrowed” from elsewhere. Remember their set up behind their site may be very different.

Many businesses are unaware that routine corporate stationery requirements and regulatory disclosures and statements also need to be made on a website, and the Website Terms are a sensible place to address these issues.

If you are also conducting some of your trading on or through your site you will also need to address the eCommerce issues for the site.

It is worth remembering that if you aspire to sell your business, impress new clients or investors or suppliers, your website is a very public shop front and each of these groups can and will do their own due diligence on you. As businesses and consumers alike have become more sophisticated in their internet use and views and concerns on privacy, they will often look beyond the immediate design attractions and will check how you address the legal issues and privacy issues as an insight into how well your business is run.
