News or Magazine Website Terms of Use Template

Free News or Magazine Website Terms of Use

TR.WEB.TC.28a

These News or Magazine Website Terms of Use are designed for use with websites offering news or magazine-type content, free of charge, for general, non-commercial use and are thus suitable for a wide range of different websites.

These website terms of use are designed for acceptance through use. Instead of being required to read them and accept them using a checkbox or similar, visitors to your website are simply deemed to have accepted the terms of use as soon as they start using the site.

Important information about the website operator is provided, including company registration details, trading address, and details of any relevant regulatory bodies or associations. It is important to note that for certain trades and professions there may be additional information that you must supply. 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 those working in regulated professions should seek professional advice.

IP rights including, but not limited to, copyright are protected by these terms of use. IP protection provisions in this template also make it clear that the content of your site is not designed for commercial use but that users in a commercial environment are not prohibited from accessing it. An optional phrase is included to clarify this. Users are invited to contact the website operator if they wish to use any content featured on the website in any way that is not already permitted under the terms of use.

A number of options are included in this document that allow you to choose how much flexibility to give to your users when it comes to copying and saving material from your site, as well as establishing deep-links to pages within your site on other sites. More linking provisions included in the template may also help to prohibit users from establishing links to your site from sites publishing offensive or unlawful content.

Disclaimers and liability provisions in this document seek to protect website operators to the maximum extent deemed reasonable. In particular, and important for sites providing this type of content, is a disclaimer noting that opinions, views and values expressed in content appearing on the site are those of their respective authors and not necessarily of the website operator.

Further key clauses address internet security, data protection, privacy and cookies (integrating separate policies into the terms and conditions by reference), acceptable use of the website (more detailed usage provisions are included in terms and conditions for websites offering more interactivity), and 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.

This template is duplicated in the Website Terms & Conditions group.

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.
