(c) will apply whether or not the liability in question arises out of any reckless, deliberate, personal and/or repudiatory conduct or breach of contract”). In many circumstances, however, the courts will find these types of limitations and exclusions to be unenforceable. Somewhat different rules apply to limitations of liability in contracts with consumers, and these provisions should not be used in relation to such contracts. These guidance notes provide a very incomplete and basic overview of a complex subject. Accordingly, you should take legal advice if you may wish to rely upon a limitation or exclusion of liability.
Do not delete this provision (except upon legal advice). Without this provision, the specific limitations and exclusions of liability in the document are more likely to be unenforceable.
Optional element. Do you want to attempt to exclude all liability for free services and information?
This sort of exclusion is quite common, but unlikely to be enforceable in court.
“Consequential loss” has a special meaning in English law: it means any loss that, whilst not arising naturally from the breach, was specifically in the contemplation of the parties when the contract was made.
Optional element. If the website operator is a limited liability entity (e.g. a limited company), do you want to expressly exclude liability on the part of officers and employees?
Section 14: Indemnity
Section 15: Breaches of these terms and conditions
- Will account suspension or deletion be a possibility here?

- Detail the types of action which are prohibited by this provision.
Section 16: Third party websites
Section 17: Trade marks
Do any trade marks (registered or unregistered, yours or someone else’s) appear on your website?
Trade marks may be registered or unregistered. It is a criminal offence under Section 94 of the Trade Marks Act 1994 to falsely represent that a trade mark is registered. Accordingly, you must not use the (R) symbol in relation to unregistered trade marks.
It is customary in legal documents to identify specific trade marks using capital letters (e.g. TRADE MARK) and, in the case of registered marks, registration particulars (e.g. UK trade mark registration number 000001 for TRADE MARK).
- Please identify your trade marks, by reference to registration particulars in the case of registered trade marks.
Optional element. Will or might any third party trade marks be reproduced on the website?
Section 18: Competitions
Will or might you run any competitions on or in relation to the website?
Any competitions should be governed by a separate set of terms and conditions.
Section 19: Variation
Changes to legal documents published on a website will not generally be retrospectively effective, and variations without notice to and/or consent from relevant users may be ineffective.
- Will website users be notified of changes to the document?
Optional element. Will registered users be required to consent to variations?
Section 22: Third party rights
This provision is designed to exclude any rights a third party may have under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
Section 23: Entire agreement
- What other documents govern the use of the website?
Section 24: Law and jurisdiction
The questions of which law governs a document and where disputes relating to the document may be litigated are two distinct questions.
This document has been drafted to comply with English law, and the governing law provision should not be changed without obtaining expert advice from a lawyer qualified in the appropriate jurisdiction. In some circumstances the courts will apply provisions of their local law, such as local competition law or consumer protection law, irrespective of a choice of law clause.
- Which law should govern the document?
In some circumstances your jurisdiction clause may be overridden by the courts.
- Should the jurisdiction granted be exclusive or non-exclusive? Choose “non-exclusive” jurisdiction if you may want to enforce the terms and conditions against users outside England and Wales. Otherwise, choose “exclusive jurisdiction”.
- The courts of which country or jurisdiction should adjudicate disputes under the document?
