Website Acceptable Use Policies
At London-based Adam Bernard Solicitors, we understand the struggle to keep compliant with regulations and protect yourself from liability under a rapidly growing internet landscape. Our expert lawyers can help you create a personalised Acceptable Use Policy for your website to protect your internet business from legal trouble and act as evidence of your business’ proper procedure if it should ever come into question.
A Website Acceptable Use Policy is used by the business owner to set out terms on which the users are permitted to use the features of the website. These policies reduce the potential for cyber liability cases that may be taken by the website user. It is a legal requirement for every business’s website to have this policy regardless of whether the business is using the website to trade or not.
Website Acceptable Use Policies typically:
- Includes specific rules, such as no video pirating
- Outlines consequences for breaking the rules including the types of sanctions that will be implemented
- Details an organisation’s philosophy for the intended usage of their website
Some examples of the usage of a Website Acceptable Use Policy include:
- An educational establishment aiming to restrict student behavior on their internet technologies.
- Employers restricting and set out expectations of employee behavior on their company technologies.
- More generally, by website businesses to set out terms for their users and consumers.
