So why shouldn’t you do business without a website terms and conditions agreement in place?
1. Written terms and conditions help to create certainty as to the agreement
A Terms and Conditions agreement is the agreement or contract where you inform the users, visitors and customers of your website about the rules, terms and guidelines that they need to follow in order to use and access your website. A Terms and Conditions agreement has become extremely important for the protection of your website or company. While oral contracts in theory are just as enforceable as written contracts, the main problems with oral contracts are evidence and certainty. You may forget some of the terms that have been agreed to with the passage of time or there may be a dispute as to what was actually agreed upon.
2. Written terms and conditions help to minimize legal disputes and the chances of your company being sued
If you have clear written terms covering all of the necessary areas of how you do business, the chance of a legal dispute is minimized as a lawyer will advise the customer, visitor or user that the terms are clear on the matter and they would have little chance of winning if the matter were to go to court. Accordingly, you are less likely to be taken to court. While it’s not required by any laws currently through a Terms and Conditions you can maintain your rights to exclude certain users that may abuse your website or do not follow the rules you establish.
3. Written terms and conditions help you to spell out all of the important legal matters and not to overlook the things that are less obvious
As a non-lawyer and the owner of an app or website you will likely be thinking about the more business-related terms such as price, payment terms and delivery costs. However, you may not think about limiting your liability, disclaiming your liability for failure or delay caused by force majeure, or things out of your control, and amongst other legal terms, the protection of your intellectual property rights. A well drafted set of terms and conditions will help protect your company’s legal rights.
4. A well written terms and conditions can help reduce your liability
6. Written terms and conditions can help you to enforce your agreement
If you have clear and unambiguous terms and conditions, it will be very clear where a customer or user has breached the contract. Written contracts are much easier to enforce should you wish to take a customer to court or if you have to defend a lawsuit brought by a user or visitor to your website.
7. Written terms and conditions may help you to provide better customer service
A clear set of terms and conditions that are applied consistently to all users, visitors and customers can help you with providing good customer service.
8. Written terms and conditions help you comply with the law
There may be certain regulations that apply to your particular industry that you would be wise to make reference to in your terms and conditions.
