Most modern businesses publish websites. The websites may act as online brochures, providing visitors with useful information about the company. The websites can be designed to attract new customers to the business and/or to inform existing customers. They can also be used to communicate with stakeholders such as suppliers and partners. Often, they are used to attract new employees, and may feature job advertisements.

Whatever the purpose of the business site, its owner will want to have legal documentation in place governing use of the website and related matters. This corporate website terms and conditions template allows the owner of a company brochure website to state clearly the rules visitors must observe and to address intellectual property, content and liability issues.

With regard to appropriate visitor use, the corporate website T&Cs contain prohibitions on all uses that are or could be harmful, illegal, fraudulent, malevolent (eg sending viruses) or intended for data aggregation (eg scraping). Other guidelines for use include an option for visitors to register by creating a password-protected account with the accompanying obligations to monitor their accounts and keep their passwords secure. Age and residency requirements can be added.

The intellectual property provisions specify the limited rights visitors have to the content on the corporate website and the robust rights the site owner will have over any content posted by visitors. These provisions will allow the company to prosecute unauthorised uses of the material on its site while removing the need to obtain the specific agreement of every person who submits information to the website. Similarly, the T&Cs give the company a relatively free hand to modify and use visitor testimonials.

The corporate terms and conditions template provides liability protection for the website owner in three key ways. First, the T&Cs impose stringent limitations on the content that visitors may post, for example prohibiting libel, hate speech and communications in violation of court orders or contracts. Also, the owner disclaims certain warranties relating to the website and maintains the ability to modify both the site and the terms and conditions. Finally, broad limitations on the site owner's liability are included in the T&Cs.

Although these T&Cs do address the possibility of free downloadable material being made available on the corporate website, they do not cover sales, whether of merchandise or services or digital content.

My company website includes a special section containing downloads available only to business partners. Is the "restricted access" section of these terms and conditions designed for this sort of thing?

Yes. It provides, in summary, that access to certain areas of the website will be restricted, and that the website publisher reserves the right to restrict access to other areas of the site. It further provide that users authorised to access the restriction section of the site must keep login details confidential, and must notify the publisher if they become aware of any misuse. The right of the publisher to disable access to the restricted areas of the website is reserved.

Excellent quality and value

Just starting up my third start-up. Docular's documents are extremely comprehensive, particularly given the supporting notes, and saving me a considerable amount of money compared to my previous companies. Highly recommended.

Comprehensive and reasonably straightforward

This was an easier document to understand than the Privacy and Cookies Policy. Relatively straightforward and painless to edit.


Thanks Alan. After your comments on the privacy and cookies policy, I'm looking at ways to make it a little easier to use - although the complexity of the underlying law does in some respects make it tricky to produce something that is concise, clearly reflects the legal requirements, and is is straightforward for non-lawyers to use.

Consistently excellent

I've made use of a few templates for terms and conditions, privacy policy and so on and found them to be very useful. Comprehensive with good guidance that makes them easy to understand and tailor precisely to the business in question. Excellent value too. Highly recommended.


Thanks - I really appreciate this review.
