As part of our internet law & e-commerce practice, we provide website agreements services.

Types of Website Agreements

The phrase website agreements refers to a wide variety of contracts and agreements. Online business agreements include, for example:

  • Privacy Policies

  • Terms of Use or Service Agreements

  • Website Development Agreements

  • End-User License Agreements (EULA)

  • Website Maintenance Agreements

We review Internet businesses and analyze their business needs and legal compliance issues. We draft all forms of website agreements and provide guidance on best practices for online businesses.

Legal Compliance: Not All Businesses Need the Same Website Agreements

Activities conducted on a website, such as intrastate sales or maintaining a web presence, trigger different federal rules or regulations. To address these regulations and risks, maintaining a web presence may require special online business agreements in place. For example, privacy policies and terms of use agreements are necessary for most Internet businesses. But for eCommerce sites those agreements are necessary for legal compliance. In addition, internet service providers (ISPs) will have different and more legal compliance requirements necessitating more complex website agreements.

Website Development Contracts and Hosting Agreements

Once a company offers their goods or services online, it should invest in online business agreements. With our experience in Internet law, we provide advice on complying with federal and state rules. We also draft important legal agreements, such as website privacy policies and terms of use agreements that companies often overlook. These website agreements can help protect website owners and operators because they provide notice to users of permitted and prohibited use as well as disclaim some legal liabilities.

Website Contracts

We tailor online contracts to meet and accommodate the specific needs of a company or brand owner. We evaluate websites and conduct audits of intellectual property (IP) portfolios to draft legal agreements that fit our clients' needs.
