Paid Business Directory Website Terms of Use

Website Terms of Use - Paid Business Directory


This document has been updated for Brexit. References to the GDPR have been removed in favour of a simpler cross-reference to a Privacy Policy. A range of Privacy Policy templates is available in our UK GDPR and Data Protection group.

These Website Terms of Use for Paid Business Directories are designed for use on websites which provide directory listing services in exchange for a fee. Such sites may be broad ranging, covering a variety of business types; or may be more specific, targeting specific industries or sectors.

While it is expected that more users of such websites are likely to be businesses rather than consumers, these Terms of Use nevertheless cater for both business users and consumer users.

This document is designed for use with a counterpart set of terms of sale. This template applies to the use of your website itself, leaving the terms governing the sale of paid directory listings to a separate document.

These Terms of Use are designed for acceptance through use. When a user visits your website, they are deemed to have accepted the terms of use. Optional wording in this template also allows for the terms to be accepted as part of the sign-up process on your website.

Optional provisions in these Terms of Use also cover free directory listings which may or may not be supported by third-party advertising (also available via optional provisions in the template). Other key provisions govern user accounts, intellectual property ownership, linking, disclaimers, legal rights, liability, acceptable usage, privacy, and data protection.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
