IP is particularly important when dealing with digital content. Detailed provisions in this document address intellectual property rights. Various options are included in the document to allow you to choose how many freedoms to give your users when it comes to saving and copying material from your website. These options are grouped into two versions of the intellectual property clause. The first is more restrictive; the second, more flexible with more options. In either case, use of your content can be restricted to personal use or can be opened up to commercial use as well.
User content is handled in a dedicated section of the template. Users retain the IP rights in their content and grant a licence to you to the extent necessary to use their content to operate your site. Different options are included in the document to cater for the use of user content by other users on the site.
Further key provisions in the document address links to and from the site, disclaimers, liability (with different provisions for consumers and business users), viruses and security, and acceptable use of the website.
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.
