These Small Business Brochure Website Terms and Conditions are designed for use with simple websites, providing straightforward, brochure-type content. This template is best suited to websites operated by individuals or small businesses wishing to provide details of products and/or services online but without offering any e-commerce facilities.

As with many website terms and conditions, these are designed for acceptance through use. In other words, visitors to your website are deemed to have accepted them as soon as they start using the site.

Important information about the website operator is provided, including company registration details, trading address, and details of any relevant regulatory bodies or associations. For certain trades and professions there may be additional information that website operators are required by law to provide. If you are a member of a regulated profession, you should include professional titles, links to professional rules and other important details. Such details are not included in this template and you should seek professional advice if you work in a regulated profession.

IP rights including, but not limited to, copyright are protected by these terms and conditions. Optional provisions are included in the template to allow you to choose how many freedoms to give to your users with regard to saving and copying material from your site, as well as establishing deep-links to pages within your site on other sites. Further provisions concerning linking are also designed to help to prohibit users from establishing links to your site from sites publishing unsavoury or unlawful content.

Disclaimers and liability provisions in this document seek to protect website operators to the maximum extent deemed reasonable. In particular, users are advised of the possibility that there may be slight discrepancies between products or services shown on the website and the actual products or services available. It is important, however, to ensure that such provisions are not unduly biased against users – particularly when dealing with consumers – lest they be considered unfair in the eyes of the law. Additional liability provisions, therefore, are provided that apply only to business users.

Further key clauses address internet security, data protection, privacy and cookies (integrating separate policies into the terms and conditions by reference), acceptable use of the website (more detailed usage provisions are included in terms and conditions for websites offering more interactivity), and opting in and out of marketing communications. All parts of this template are designed to be compatible with consumer protection legislation including, but not limited to, the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
