In the meantime, here’s some basic information to help boost your knowledge.
Limitation of Liability
This is a disclaimer that states you can’t be held responsible for any errors in the content on your website.
If your website allows visitors to post content, you should have language that limits your liability from derogatory or offensive postings by others. Make sure the disclaimer states you don’t endorse the thoughts, opinions and positions of users, and you aren’t responsible for statements made by third parties.
Pro tip: If you’re in the business of collecting customer information, consider adding an SSL to your site to heighten security.
You want your visitors to feel safe on your site, especially if they’re going to provide you with private information.
It’s important to state where your website operates relative to governing law (state, province or country). For example, if you’re operating your company from Illinois, you might use language similar to, “These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of Illinois.”
Just remember — your business website will have its own unique characteristics and needs, so you might need to include elements different from, or in addition to, those listed above.
The above content should not be construed as legal or tax advice. Always consult an attorney or tax professional regarding your specific legal or tax situation.
