E-Commerce (Sale of Adult Content) Website Terms of Use Template

Website Terms of Use - E-Commerce Sale of Adult Content (B2C)

TR.WEB.TC.10

These E-Commerce Sale of Adult Content Website Terms of Use are designed for use by online retailers on e-commerce websites providing adult content to consumers.

This document is designed for use with a counterpart set of terms of sale, available here. This template applies to the use of your website itself, leaving the terms governing the sale of premium content to a separate document.

Please Note: This template, together with the counterpart terms of sale, replaces the previous TR.WEB.TC.10 and TR.WEB.TC.11 templates. Whereas the previous versions were designed for use as single documents, the new versions must be used together.

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.

Important information about the website operator is set out in these terms of use, including company registration details, trading address, and details of any relevant regulatory bodies or associations (Video-On-Demand 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 websites offering adult content, these terms of use include important notices regarding the age of persons 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 countries.

IP rights including, but not limited to, copyright are protected by these terms and conditions. Optional provisions are included in the template 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 site from sites 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 is an Acceptable Usage Policy. Applying to the use of the website in general, but in particular to the submission of user content (such as 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 template 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.

This template is duplicated in the Internet & E-Commerce group.
