What are terms and conditions?
- Limitations on liability – this is a basic disclaimer indicating that you can’t be held legally responsible for any errors or omissions on your website. If you allow users to post on your site, the language in this section should also shield you from liability for any offensive, vulgar or otherwise inappropriate posts.
- Copyright – protects the content on your site from wrongful use by including a simple symbol and clause such as, “Copyright © 2020 xyzwebsite.com.”
- Governing law – this is a simple statement indicating which state laws apply to the use of the site such as: “These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of Florida.” This is important because these are the laws that will be used in the event of a dispute.
How to create the terms and conditions page for your website
Now that you know what terms and conditions are, and why they are important, you may be wondering how to create this part of your website. Whatever you do, do not “borrow” language from another website. For one thing, by doing so you are engaging in copyright infringement. Secondly, there is no guarantee they will protect your business.
On the other hand, by allowing the business and contract lawyers here at Eskander Loshak LLP to draft this language for you, you can be sure that you and your business are fully protected.
