General notes

What you need to do to comply with the Data Protection Act 2018

The Act applies to all personal data you collect, use, or store. The scope includes data about any INDIVIDUAL.

We have drawn a comprehensive privacy notice. It reassures your website visitors that you take their privacy seriously. More importantly, your adopting it will prompt you to make whatever changes are necessary for your day-to-day business. You can download it at https://www.netlawman.co.uk/d/website-privacy-policy

For this terms and conditions document, you do not have to explain to customers that you comply with the law – any more than you would tell them you comply with any other law.

As a vastly reduced summary, the important areas of the Act to consider are:

· you do not have a provision where you are assuming implied consent of the customer to use his information in the way you think fit;

· if you let a user post information include his name, address, image, etc., to your website, you may not edit, change, or process that information without express consent.

· Until now, you could simply ask for a tick to a box indicating that your customer or client has read your T&C. That is no longer good enough. You need to say exactly what you might do with your user’s data.

· The most vital elements of data to keep in mind are personal data and any data which you want to use – for example, as a testimonial.

You may find the full list at:

https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/applications/children/

We have drawn this terms and conditions document based on the assumption that you would make practical changes on your website and use updated privacy notice. So as to allow you to run your business seamlessly while complying with Act.

Paragraph specific notes

Notes numbering refers to paragraph numbers.

1. Definitions

We have no comment.

2. Children on Our Website

The purposes of this paragraph are first to inform parents and others in charge of children that your site may contain unsuitable content and, secondly, to protect you from a claim on that account. The last subparagraph covers the situation where some third party acts on behalf of the child as a way to avoid the previous disclaimer. Delete if you are sure it is not required.

3. Intellectual Property

Few business managers appreciate just how much IP is owned by the business. There is an enormous variety of IP rights, from domain names to trademarks. It is sensible to leave this provision in place, edited as appropriate.

4. Disclaimers and limitation of liability

This paragraph may be the main reason why you have bought this document. We have given you very strong protection. The law is complicated, and much depends on the facts of each case. Our best advice to you is to include these disclaimers so far as they apply to your business.

You will see that we have also included in the provision for your associates to have the same protection. One way to get around disclaimer provisions in the past was to claim not against the company with whom the claimant has a contract but against the directors or others in negligence.

Rights of Third Parties Act – We have provided references to two Acts. By all means, select the one according to your jurisdiction clause.

5. Miscellaneous matters

A number of special points. We have identified each of these as important to protect you. Some are relevant to particular paragraphs in the document; some apply more generally. Some are included to strengthen your position generally. Do not delete unless you are quite positive about the legal effect of doing so.
