Crafting a Well Developed Terms of Service Agreement

Posted on in Online Contracts

FL cyber law attorneyWith the rapid rise in technology, has come a rapidly changing landscape in the world of business. Today fewer companies utilize a conventional storefront, while almost every business looks to build a thriving online presence. With a larger percentage of businesses going online, companies need to understand the potential pitfalls of working in the cyber world. Below we will discuss the importance of a terms of service agreement, and the mistakes you should avoid when finalizing yours.

What Is a Terms of Service Agreement?

A terms of service agreement is strictly a document that aims to cover a wide array of issues related to the legal relationship between a website and its users. Failure to clearly establish the terms of the agreement can result in costly lawsuits from users or even fines from Federal Trade Commission.

While a terms of service agreement can vary based on the type of company, there are a number of criteria usually covered in any agreement. The main issues surrounding most terms of service agreements include language pertaining to how the company can use a user’s information, the nuances of the payment method used on the website, and the rights of the user.

It goes without saying that developing these agreements can come with many pitfalls. As a business owner, you need to understand that you have a legal relationship with every person that visits your website. Thus you can be in significant legal trouble if you fail to properly display the terms of your relationship with your users.

In the vast majority of legal disputes involving terms of service agreements, the business owner involved is simply inexperienced and failed to notice a necessary nuance in the agreement. In order to avoid a costly lawsuit, look to hire a cyber law attorney that can assist you in developing a contract that will protect you and your business.
