Website terms: simple information site
What you need to do to comply with the Data Protection Act 2018
The Data Protection Act applies to all personal data you gather, use or store. The scope includes data concerning any INDIVIDUAL.
We have come up with an extensive privacy notice. It guarantees your website visitors that you are serious about their privacy. More importantly, implementing it will encourage you to make whatever changes are necessary in your day to day business. You can download it at https://www.netlawman.co.uk/d/website-privacy-policy
For this terms and conditions document, there is no need to explain to customers that you conform with law – any more than you would tell them you comply with any other law.
As a vastly reduced summary, the important areas of the Act to consider include:
- you do not have a provision where you are assuming implied permission of customer to use his information in the way you think fit;
- if you allow a user to post information to your website, you may not process, edit or change that information without express permission, if such information include his name, address, image etc.
- Until now, you could simply ask for a tick to a box indicating that your customer or client has read your T&C. That is no longer good enough. You need to say exactly what you might do with your user’s data.
- The most essential elements of data to consider are personal data and any data which you want to use – for example as a testimonial.

We have drawn this terms and conditions document on the notion that you would make sensible changes on your website and use an updated privacy notice. This way, you can operate your business effortlessly while complying with the Act.
Paragraph specific notes
Notes numbering refers to paragraph numbers.
We have no comment.
2.Children on Our Website
The purposes of this paragraph are first, to inform parents and others in charge of children that your site may contain unsuitable content and secondly to protect you from a claim on that account. The last sub paragraph covers the situation where some third-party acts on behalf of the child to avoid the previous disclaimer. Remove if you are sure it is not required.
- Intellectual Property
Not many business managers are cognisant with how much IP is owned by the business. There is a plethora of IP rights, from domain names to trademarks. It is a good idea to leave this provision in place, edited as appropriate.
4.Disclaimers and limitation of liability
This paragraph is crucial and may be the main reason for purchasing this document. We have given you great protection. The law is complicated, and much is based on the facts of each case. We advise you to include these disclaimers as far as they apply to your business.
You will see that we have also encompassed in the provision for your associates to have the same protection. One way to get around disclaimer provisions in the past was to claim not against the company with whom the claimant has a contract but against the directors or others in negligence.
Rights of Third Parties Act – We have provided reference of two Acts. By all means select the one according to your jurisdiction clause.
Several special points. We have identified each of these as important to protect you. Some can be used in particular paragraphs in the document, some apply more generally. Some are added to boost your position generally. Do not erase unless you are quite positive of the legal effect of doing so.
