This document, together with the counterpart terms of sale, replaces the
previous TR.WEB.TC.10a and TR.WEB.TC.11a documents. Whereas the previous
versions were designed for use as single templates, the new versions must
be used together.
These Website Terms are designed for acceptance through use. When a user
visits your website, they are deemed to have accepted them. Optional
wording in this template also allows for the terms to be accepted as part
of the sign-up process on your website.
Important information about the website operator is set out in these
website terms, including company registration details, trading address, and
details of any relevant regulatory bodies or associations (VOD providers,
for example, should be aware of Ofcom’s regulatory role). For some trades
and professions, additional information may be required. Members of
regulated professions should include professional titles, links to
professional rules and other important details. Such details are not
included in this template and professional advice should be sought by those
working in regulated professions.
Being designed for sites offering adult content, these website terms
include important notices regarding the age of individuals appearing in
that content. Please note: Legal compliance statements
have been included in this template as common examples only. It is your
responsibility to seek professional guidance on any and all relevant
requirements that may apply to your website and other key aspects
including, but not limited to, its particular content, target audience, and
availability in different jurisdictions.
Intellectual property rights including, but not limited to, copyright are
document to allow you to choose how many freedoms to give to your users
with regard to saving and copying material from your site, as well as
establishing deep-links to pages within your site on other sites. Further
provisions concerning linking are also designed to help to prohibit users
from establishing links to your website from websites publishing unsavoury
or unlawful content.
Disclaimers and liability provisions in this document seek to protect
website operators to the maximum extent deemed reasonable. It is important,
however, to ensure that such provisions are not unduly biased against users
– particularly when dealing with consumers – lest they be considered unfair
in the eyes of the law. Additional liability provisions, therefore, are
provided that apply only to business users.
Also included in this document is an Acceptable Usage Policy. Applying to
the use of the site in general, but in particular to the submission of user
content (for example, reviews and comments), the policy sets out clearly
the types of material and conduct that will not be accepted. Sanctions for
breach are also included.
Further key clauses address internet security, data protection, privacy and
cookies (integrating separate policies into the terms and conditions by
reference), and opting in and out of marketing communications. All parts of
this document are designed to be compatible with consumer protection
legislation including, but not limited to, the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
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.
