Website Terms Of Service

website terms of service

What are terms of service?

Website terms of service, also known as “terms of use” and “terms and conditions of use,” are typically the rules a website’s visitors must agree that they will follow in order to make use of the website, plus disclaimers limiting the potential liabilities of the owners of the website business in question.

Why have these terms on your site?

A well-written set of terms of service will be legally binding and at the same time can be updated over time if the need arises because of changes in the law or site content.

What typically goes into a set of terms of service?

Your site’s terms may provide a list of definitions for key terms while also explaining the website’s rules and policies and how they apply to users of the website. This most commonly is done in the form of a listing of the services and goods provided and a breakdown of any fees associated with these products and services.

Having a good set of terms of use is important for the attraction of clients and because of the legal protections they can provide.

Potential clients put a lot end to put a lot of stock in a well written set of terms because they make it clear to just how they will benefit from the web service and what that benefit is going to cost them.

Companies that post terms and conditions to their websites benefit from the certainty their clients feel when visiting a site with a well written set of terms. However, they also will benefit from their terms of service because they can be written with disclaimers and other protective shield language to offer a fair amount of protection as website owners.

How do you get your own set of terms of service?

Does your bursiness need a terms of service document put together for your website? Internet Lawyer Mike Young has been helping businesses by preparing their terms of service and other website legal documents since the mid-1990s. To get new terms or service or have your existing terms reviewed, set up a telephone consultation with Attorney Young.

Website owner going to jail

By Internet Lawyer

One of the owners of a poker website is going to jail for the crime of deceiving banks who were processing gambling revenues. As I explained in my book (http://InternetLawsBook.com), gambling is one of those dangerous areas online until the government figures out who it is going to license and tax to run Internet casinos.
What about website legal documents? Can you use Terms & Conditions, etc. to keep the government from coming after your website?
The right website legal documents CAN reduce your civil liability exposure, i.e. take away most of your risks of getting sued in civil court for what you have on your website. However, if you’re doing something the government thinks is criminal (e.g. selling fake cancer cures), your website’s legal documents aren’t going to do much to protect you.
Speaking of fake cancer cures, there’s a criminal who pled guilty a few years ago to selling fake medicines to sick people online. Instead of going to jail, he’s now one of those “get rich” Internet marketing gurus.
You have to wonder about government priorities that sends someone to prison for handling consensual Internet gambling transactions between adults while letting a con artist get away with selling fake meds and online flopportunities.
