2 The completed website disclaimer should be easily accessible on your website, preferably from every page. Ideally, from a legal perspective, users should be asked to expressly agree to these terms (e.g. by clicking an “I agree” button). However, in practice, this is very rarely done in relation to website disclaimers.
3 The scope of the licence to use will vary with the site. Consider carefully exactly what your users should be allowed to do with the material on your website.
4 Where you have content which is specifically available for redistribution, it is usually a good idea to have a more detailed licence setting out the redistribution rights.
5 This is a very broad exclusion of warranties and liability – and elements of it may be unenforceable.
6 Changes to the notices will not be retrospectively effective.
8 The questions of what law governs a contract, and where disputes relating to the contract may be litigated, are two distinct questions.
11 This section can be deleted where The Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002 (aka the Ecommerce Regulations) do not apply. Generally, the Regulations will apply unless a website is entirely non-commercial – i.e. where a website does offer any goods or services and does not involve any remuneration (which includes remuneration for carrying AdSense or other advertising).
12 The Ecommerce Regulations provide that where you are “registered in a trade or similar register available to the public” you must provide “details of the register in which the service provider is entered and his registration number, or equivalent means of identification in that register”.
13 The Ecommerce Regulations provide that “where the provision of the service is subject to an authorisation scheme” you must provide “the particulars of the relevant supervisory authority”. In most cases you will be able to delete this paragraph.
14 The Ecommerce Regulations provide that where “the service provider exercises a regulated profession”, it must provide “(i) the details of any professional body or similar institution with which the service provider is registered; (ii) his professional title and the member State where that title has been granted; (iii) a reference to the professional rules applicable to the service provider in the member State of establishment and the means to access them”.
15 The Ecommerce Regulations provide that “a service provider shall indicate which relevant codes of conduct he subscribes to and give information on how those codes can be consulted electronically”.
16 Under the Ecommerce Regulations, where the service provider undertakes an activity that is subject to value added tax, the relevant identification number must be disclosed.
17 UK companies must provide their corporate names, their registration numbers, their place of registration and their registered office address on their websites.
Sole traders and partnerships who carry on a business in the UK under a “business name” (i.e. a name which is not the names of the trader/partners or certain other specified classes of name) must also make certain website disclosures: (i) in the case of a sole trader, the individual’s name; (ii) in the case of a partnership, the name of each member of the partnership; and (iii) in either case, in relation to each person named, an address in the UK at which service of any document relating in any way to the business will be effective.
All websites covered by the Ecommerce Regulations must provide a geographic address (not a PO Box number) and an email address.
18 Please note that it is a condition of the use of this template that you either: (i) retain this credit and these links; or (ii) pay the appropriate licence fee in relation to each website on which the document is used.
