What are a website’s terms and conditions?
Can a uniform set of terms and conditions be used?
Each website requires a different set of terms and conditions. For example, websites that offer products or services for sale through the Internet require terms and conditions that define everything related to carrying out transactions on the website. Content sites need to explicitly define the intellectual property on the website. Websites that include forms or permit visitors to enter content on the site require terms and conditions that will protect them from lawsuits for defamation and other legal risks that arise from actions by visitors to the website. Certain businesses use the Internet not only as a tool to market their business or as a virtual store but also to carry out all of their activities on the Internet. Such Internet ventures require even more comprehensive terms and conditions because their activities on the web are generally far broader and therefore more exposed to legal risks.
