Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) is here to help you formulate your website terms of use

Website Terms of Use (also referred to as ‘terms of service’ or ‘terms & conditions’) is a way for you to define some rules and regulations for any visitors using your website. It’s also a way to protect your organisation by limiting your liability if a customer were to take legal action against you for something that might appear on your site.

Although there’s actually no legal obligation for you to define the terms and conditions for using your website, it is therefore prudent to consider creating them for your own legal protection.

Every set of terms will be different, but your website terms of use will typically cover:

  • Information about you and the purpose of the website
  • Access and availability
  • How to register, if you want visitors to register
  • Information on what data you collect, and how you use it
  • Conditions for using the site, especially if the site has an interactive forum on which views can be expressed
  • Payment information and returns, if you sell directly from the site
  • Waivers covering links from the site to other sites

Here at Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) we can help you to formulate a comprehensive set of website terms of use that will be specific to your circumstances, and take into account the way your website is set up and used.

At VIHS, we’re here to provide that necessary legal insight, as and when you need it, and it’s a totally flexible service that has been designed to meet your needs and obligations.

Good morning, Erika. Thanks again for the website terms of use. It’s just what we needed. We thought this would be a tortuous process, but it turned out to be much easier than we could have hoped, thanks to your advice and guidance.
