with simple brochure sites which also offer contact tools such as a
“contact us” form or online chat for visitors to contact your business.
This document is best suited to sites operated by individuals or small
businesses wishing to provide details of goods, services, or digital
content online but without offering any e-commerce facilities.
This template has been reviewed and updated in line with current best
practice. A number of provisions have been revised to make them simpler,
clearer, and more user-friendly. Some parts of the document have also been
re-structured, also to improve user-friendliness. New sections have been
added to explain the possible differences between products displayed on the
website and the actual products available.
The revised “How to Contact Us” section of the document includes a new
option to cross-refer to a separate Acceptable Use Policy rather than
accept the terms simply by using your site. This is made clear at the
start. References are also included to other terms which apply to the
sale or service which will govern sales (your on-premises or doorstep sales
terms, for example). It is also expressly stated that nothing is sold
not suitable for selling online.
Important information is provided about the website operator, 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 template and professional advice should be
sought by those working in regulated professions.
options are included in the document to allow you to choose how many
freedoms to give to your users when it comes to saving and copying 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.
Further key provisions 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 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.
