Our eCommerce Legal Services


Website Terms and Conditions

Our eCommerce lawyers regularly draft website terms and conditions for online Australian businesses.

Website terms and conditions are often referred to as “Terms of Use” or “Terms of Service.” They provide a legally binding agreement between a website and its visitors and users. These terms outline the rules, responsibilities, and expectations for website users.


Website Terms of Use

Our lawyers are committed to creating comprehensive and tailored website terms of use that protect your business interests. while looking to inform your website users.

It’s crucial to have well-crafted terms of use that clearly outline user responsibilities, intellectual property protection, dispute resolution mechanisms, and compliance with relevant laws.


Website privacy policy

A privacy policy will inform users how you will collect, store, use, protect and destroy personal information. A privacy policy may be mandatory for your business or required by the platform that your eCommerce site is hosted by.

A privacy policy needs to be drafted so that it specifically applies to your business and how you manage personal data.


Terms of Sale

Engaging an experienced eCommerce lawyer to draft terms of sale is important for every website owner. To the maximum extent permitted, you need to be able to limit liability if something goes wrong.

Website terms and conditions should also describe how goods and services can be used, contain an intellectual property clause and other terms relevant to your eCommerce website.

eCommerce Law FAQs

How much does it cost for website terms and conditions?

Our legal fees to prepare custom website terms generally range for $850 to $2,500 plus GST.

Do I need terms and conditions on my website?

If your website contains an express warranty, those warranty terms should be accompanied by the mandatory Australian Consumer Law wording.

Depending on the size and type of your online business, it may also be a legal requirement for you to have a privacy policy, particularly if you are dealing with sensitive personal data.

Our eCommerce lawyer will discuss your business and the products or services you will be selling and advise what your website terms and conditions need to include.

What should I put terms and conditions on my website?

Website terms and conditions usually include terms about:

  • use of goods and services at the user’s own risk
  • the legal entity that owns the website and is the owner of the business
  • a governing law clause
  • information about third party sites
  • any conditions that apply to a subscription service
  • any rules that apply to users that post content
  • refund policies
  • intellectual property clause including use of images or trade marks
  • how and when website terms and conditions can be changed by the website owner
Should I avoid using a terms and conditions template?

It is critical that your website terms and conditions are relevant to you as the website owner and to your website visitors. Using a terms and conditions template can lead to problems, including:

  • a legal contract is formed for things you did not intend to promise to your website customers
  • the conditions template is not properly amended because its terms are not understood
  • the terms do not properly inform users and lead to customer confusion
  • Talk to one of our eCommerce lawyers today about how we can prepare custom terms for a fixed fee.

Website terms and conditions need to also outline any requirements that apply to third party websites that may be accessible through your website.

Do you offer legal advice regarding intellectual property rights?

Intellectual property includes images, audio and text that you publicly display on your website and in marketing material. There may also be intellectual property in the goods and services you sell. We can provide you with legal advice so that:

  • you do not infringe someone else’s intellectual property rights
  • your intellectual property is protected from misuse
How can your lawyers help with Domain names, business names and trade marks?

Although there is no intellectual property in a domain or business name, using them in the course of business may infringe someone else’s trade mark. It is important to seek legal advice when you are naming you promote online services or sell products.

Our eCommerce lawyers can conduct clearance checks, register trade marks and defend any claims of intellectual property infringement.

What is a refund policy and returns policy?

Businesses that sell goods or services should tell customers about their refund policy. As eCommerce lawyers, our legal team will confirm any applicable law that you need to consider when developing your refund policy.

We have prepared returns policies for Australian and international eCommerce websites. We can help prepare custom terms that provide a great customer experience. Whether you want to offer a ‘no questions asked’ returns policy, or simply meet the minimum requirements of the Australian Consumer Law – our lawyers can help.
