About this website terms and conditions document

By “continuous”, we mean work that continues until one side or the other terminates, as against a one-off service. Could be for a retail or business client. Perfect for a “cloud” service. Examples: web hosting; provision of statistics; Internet marketing; advertising placements. Extensive and detailed provisions to protect your IP and servers and to control what is allowed in postings.

Because this is a website TandC document, we assume that all details of your service will be on your website.

We have presented many options, each in simple terms so as to give you a menu of possibilities.

We have set out the basic consumer rights so that your consumer client or customer is aware that his right are limited. (Many consumers assume “anything goes")

There are provisions for what can be uploaded to your site, draft data storage provisions.

There are special additional provisions regarding domain names which will not be required by every buyer of this document.

Excellent as always. Really appreciate these tools. While I still need a solicitor it gets me 95% of the way there, which means huge savings.
