About this document

These are terms of use for a simple directory website, where payments are not made online and visitors have no opportunity to upload, download or otherwise interface with your pages.

Examples of sites that would use this template would include:

  • a directory of sites or webpages that are about a particular topic

  • a local directory of businesses

  • a list of recommended products linking to retailers that stock them

Unless you can ask all your visitors to agree to the terms, this document is unlikely to be contractually binding. However, our strong limitation of liability provisions do provide low level protection and would make it difficult for someone to claim financial damage from you. The template also provides contractual protection to all of your intellectual property - text, images, layout and so on.

Alternative documents

If your visitors submit links to your site, review links or interface in some other way, our terms for moderated directory, blog or review site will be more appropriate.
