Website terms and conditions form the contract between you and your customers. Net Lawman T&C are clear, precise and complete. They should help protect your website from misuse and encourage visitors to become customers. The ones on this page are for online news and information sites, blogs, and product or service review sites.
Website terms & conditions: news, review and information sites
This website T&C is for a very simple website with no e-commerce and no interaction by a visitor to enter data, upload, download or leave comments. Your site simply offers information: prices, contact information, match results, or any other.
Website terms and conditions template: news, review, information or community site; subscription model
These terms and conditions have been drawn for sites that provide access to digital content in return for a subscription fee. Examples of sites that would use this template would include: a technology news and review site where some content is available only to subscribers; a site that provides access to a library of company reports; and a site that provides access to a business forum to subscribers. The content could be generated by the site owner or by the community your site fosters. It includes strong protection of your site against malicious use and your intellectual property, whether generated by you or by your subscribers.
These terms and conditions have been drawn for a site that fosters an online community. A key differentiator of these terms from others is that there are no provisions for subscription, so although membership may be required for access, it is free. Examples of types of sites that might use it include: collaborative sites such as software development communities; wikis; user maintained directories; online fan clubs; and customer communities (such as those offering product support). The template includes strong protection of intellectual property, whether generated by you or by your subscribers.
These website terms are suitable for blogs, directories, review sites or information sites that do not require as strict terms regulating visitor contributed content. You might not ask visitors to contribute to your site, or you might moderate or approve content before it is published. Examples of such sites might be: personal or corporate blogs; directories (for example, of local attractions) where visitor contributed content is likely to be moderated and approved before publishing; or review sites (for example, of mobile telephone apps) where content is published by pre-approved writers.
