Terms of Use

Contrary to popular belief, the Internet is not akin to wholly lawless “Wild West”; to the contrary, many legal protections are available to those who participate – as website operators, casual browsers, and otherwise – in the Internet community. But the Internet can still be fraught with legal pitfalls for website owners and operators who, in setting the rules and limitations for the use of your website, fail to take advantage of those protections. Establishing appropriate terms and conditions can dramatically limit one’s exposure to liability that can arise from acceptance of third-party content (such as user comments and postings), failure to provide adequate privacy protection, copyright infringement, and even routine commercial transactions.

Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC attorneys can help craft terms of use designed to ensure website owners the ability to maintain orderly sites without unnecessary exposure to potential liability at the hands of a few miscreants.
