Basic Website Terms of Use


These Basic Website Terms of Use are designed for use with simple websites that provide straightforward, non-interactive content with no e-commerce. These template terms and conditions are best suited to websites operated by individuals or small businesses.

These website terms of use are designed to be accepted through use. Users accept the terms by simply using the website. This is emphasised at the start of the terms. References are also included to other terms which apply, including a privacy policy.

Important information about the website operator is provided, including company registration details, trading address, and details of any relevant regulatory bodies or associations. For certain trades and professions there may be additional information that website operators are required by law to provide. Members of regulated professions should include professional titles, links to professional rules and other important details. Such details are not included in this document and professional advice should be sought by those working in regulated professions.

IP rights such as copyright are protected by these terms of use. Various options are included in the document to allow you to choose how many freedoms to give to your users when it comes to using material from your site. These options are grouped into two versions of the Intellectual Property section. The first is more restrictive; the second, more flexible with more options.

Other key sections cover links to and from the site, disclaimers, liability (with different provisions for consumers and business users), malware and security, and acceptable use of the site.

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. Please note that while clause numbering is automatic, cross references to other clauses within the text do not update automatically and must be changed manually if the addition or removal of other clauses changes numbering.
