This terms and conditions template has been designed for UK websites that publish finance-related information (which may include information provided by website users) but do not undertake any activities that are regulated under financial services law, including financial promotions.
The template assumes that the information on the website is provided free of charge, and it is insufficient for websites that charge subscription or other fees.
Provisions that are particularly relevant to this type of website include: a prohibition on users providing professional advice through the website; a prohibition on user content that amounts to financial promotions, investment advice, and so on; a requirement that users disclose any material interest they may have in the subject matter of their contributions; a disclaimer in relation to information provided by others and relationships with persons encountered through the website; a prohibition on users outside the UK using the website, unless they may lawfully do so under their local law; and investment warnings.
