Website owner, the offering, and binding of Terms

As in every agreement, the Terms need to clearly state the owner of the website, what the website offers and the Terms being a binding agreement upon the users of the website. If the website is operated by a legal entity, it is important to state the full and precise name of such entity (and not the commercial name used for business activity). It is also important to define what is offered on the website and to state that the Terms are a legal agreement controlling the use of the website by visitors and users of the services.

Sample: This website is owned and operated by [name of your website operator]. These Terms set forth the terms and conditions under which you may use our website and services as offered by us. This website offers visitors [description of what is offered on your website]. By accessing or using the website of our service, you approve that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms.

Who can use your website; what are the requirements to create an account

You must define who is entitled and who is permitted to use the website and the services, and when relevant, what the requirements are for opening an account. 

Sample: In order to use our website and/or receive our services, you must be at least [add number] years of age, or of the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, and possess the legal authority, right and freedom to enter into these Terms as a binding agreement. You are not allowed to use this website and/or receive services if doing so is prohibited in your country or under any law or regulation applicable to you.

Key commercial Terms offered to customers

If the website includes sale of products and/or services, the Terms must include the main commercial terms for purchasing or licensing of such services. For example, if the website offers subscriptions to a product or service, the Terms need to define the terms of such licensing, the payable fees, and terms of subscription renewal.

Retention of right to change offering

It is important to be able to change the offering on and/or through the website without being exposed to claims by the users of the website. Accordingly, Terms should include wording allowing the owner of the website to freely change the services and products offered on the website.   

Ownership of intellectual property, copyrights and logos

In order to protect the rights of the website owner in its content, materials and products, it is important to include wording retaining all rights and emphasizing that the visitors and the customers of the website are not granted any such rights.

Right to suspend or cancel user account

Websites need to be able to avoid misuse of the website by users and/or avoid exposure as a result of illegal activity conducted on the website (or by using a service or product offered by the website). Accordingly, websites offering subscription services or online services (such as SAAS) usually retain the ability to suspend or cancel the ability of a user or customer to use the website or the services. 

Sample: We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the service without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of these Terms or any applicable law or regulations. You may discontinue use and request to cancel your account and/or any services at any time. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, with respect to automatically-renewed subscriptions to paid services, such subscriptions will be discontinued only upon the expiration of the respective period for which you have already made payment

Indemnification

Websites must have the ability to seek indemnification from users and customers that cause damages to the website or its owners. The indemnity obligation is usually addressed in the Terms.   The indemnification obligations need to be adjusted and be made fit to the potential exposure of each website according to its specific activities.  

Sample: You agree to indemnify and hold [website owner] harmless from any demands, loss, liability, claims or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), made against them by any third party due to, or arising out of, or in connection with your use of the website or any of the services offered on the website.

Right to change and modify Terms

In order to be able to change your Terms without requirement to receive the consent and approval of the Users, we recommend retaining the ability to change or modify the Terms at the website Owner’s will.

Promotional emails and content

Many countries require that you receive the consent of your users before sending them promotional messages. The form of such consent and the legal requirements vary from country to country and therefore we recommend that you seek legal assistance on this subject.

Sample: You agree to receive from time to time promotional messages and materials from us, by mail, email or any other contact form you may provide us with (including your phone number for calls or text messages). If you don't want to receive such promotional materials or notices – please just notify us at any time

Preference of law and dispute resolution

It is important to define the laws and regulations under which the website and the business activities are acting. It is common to define the location of the courts that have jurisdiction over disputes between the website owner and any customer or user. Some Terms include provisions enforcing arbitration procedures as the sole dispute resolution mechanism. It is also possible to waive certain legal proceedings (such as a jury trial or class actions).

Customer support details & contact info

Terms are expected to have contact information enabling users and customers to receive customer support services and to correspond with the website and its operators.
