eCommerce and IT Services
In a world where technology is not just the future but is essential to some aspect of every business’s operation, Adam Bernard Solicitors is proud to present an innovative range of eCommerce and Information Technology focussed specific contracts. The regulatory considerations for online businesses differ greatly from the traditional physical business model, as such, it is incredibly important that the contracts used by businesses with a virtual presence are compliant and mindful of this.
eCommerce/Market Place Terms and Conditions
eCommerce Terms and conditions govern the way in which your business sells goods online and is an essential consideration in light of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 which applies to all forms of consumer contracts. It also highlights specific terms in your agreement with the consumer and allows your business to regulate at what stage the contract with the consumer becomes binding in a sale. For example, is it when the consumer clicks “buy now” and checks out or will the payment not be processed until your business sends a confirmation email? The difference may seem irrelevant however, it can cause major operational issues and possible legal issues if you don’t have the capacity to fulfil the product in line with the customer’s expectations.
The Online Service Terms and Conditions regulate the way in which the website is used by visitors. These are not exclusively just for websites that sell products or services (eCommerce’s), but under the Electronic Commerce Directive any business that has an online platform must include certain details of themselves to remain compliant. These will typically include the details of the business such as the name, details of the privacy and cookie policies, a disclaimer for any third-party links as well as permissions associated with website content, as well as other specific terms related to the use of the website by the user.
IT Services Agreement / Service Level Agreement
An Information Technology Services agreement is a business-to-business (B2B) agreement that is specific to IT related businesses who offer a range of services that can include webhosting, helpdesk services amongst a range of other industries. It ensures that the list of responsibilities that the business is required to carry out are outlined as well as, sanctions and procedures for not carrying these out by a specific time period.
Online Subscription Terms and Conditions
Online Supply of Goods and Services (B2B)
White Label Agreement (Mobile Application)
A white label agreement for the purpose of a mobile applications is to facilitate the development of the application by allowing the manufacturing to be outsourced by one business for the other business. Party A in this scenario would produce the application for Party B, the agreement would come in place to ensure that the material produced would still belong to Party B as they are the ones to commission this specific template.
Mobile Application End User Agreement
This agreement is specifically for the users of the mobile application to accept the terms of its use. Due to the fact that a mobile application essentially sells the user a copy of their intellectual software, this agreement ensures that they do not use the software in a way not deemed acceptable to the developer. It helps to safeguard the product and commercial interests of the developer and to restrict the rights in the distribution of the product.
Website Linking License
A website linking license is an agreement that allows one business to link another website or its contents to their own website for their users to enjoy. This is a very simple agreement that ensures that the content is used responsibly, and that the original producer remains to be the intellectual property owner.
