More information about the template

Otherwise known as ‘website disclaimers’, this is a template document for publishing important warnings, statements or notices on a company’s website that the publishing party intends to have a binding legal effect on its website visitors and (potential or existing) customers. Similarly to email disclaimers, these must be clearly visible and prominent in order to be considered enforceable. You should not use this document to execute a contract with another party to sell your goods or services.

This document is similar to an acceptable use policy, in that the content dictates how website visitors and/or customers (whether guests or registered, if applicable) can use the website (or platform, if applicable), and what the company can exclude liability for in relation to that use and access. For example, the website may contain information about legal subjects, but if the company is not a regulated or registered law firm, it will want to disclaim liability for reliance on that information by a user, by saying “in giving you access to this information through this website, we do not give legal advice”.

These legal notices also disclaim liability for third party sites that are linked to through the website and redirect users to the terms or privacy notices etc of that third party.

This document assumes that users can upload content to the website or interact with it in some way that needs to be regulated using content standards. This document also assumes that the company is incorporated in, and the website is aimed at customers in the UK, and that English law applies.
