What does website terms and conditions agreement cost? You may ask this question if you have a website or a mobile app. Let’s explore this question and review some general information about website terms and conditions and why they are important.

How Much Does a Website Terms and Conditions Agreement Cost?

Website terms and conditions sometimes called a terms of service agreement or simply terms and conditions contracts, are legal agreements between the owner of a website or app and the users of that technology.

Website terms and conditions lay out the rules that govern this business relationship by defining each party’s rights and acceptable behavior.

This important contract can help protect the business owner’s intellectual property and release them from liability for any damages that may occur in association with the use of their website or app. In addition, some website terms and conditions will include other important contracts, such as a privacy policy.

A website terms and conditions agreement is a crucial legal document and should be drafted by an experienced lawyer familiar with intellectual property and contracts. If this agreement isn’t drafted correctly, it could leave a business owner vulnerable to lawsuits, loss of intellectual property, and other legal liabilities.

ContractsCounsel’s marketplace data shows that the average cost of a website terms and conditions agreement is $767.73 across all states.

What is Included in Website Terms and Conditions?

The terms and conditions in a website’s user agreement will vary based on the services the website or app provides users, and the data the technology collects and stores.

While these contracts are customizable and will change depending on the industry, most website terms and conditions will contain the following clauses:

  • Definitions: A website terms and conditions agreement will start with a clause defining all contract terms like most contracts. This is especially important in a contract with technology because everyday users may not understand all the specialized terms used in the agreement.
  • User Rights and Responsibilities: This section will outline what rights the user can expect to have, responsibilities, and rules they must follow. An example of rights and responsibilities would be following the community guidelines on a social media app.
  • Intellectual Property Rights: Many websites and apps deal with the intellectual property of both the owner and the user. On apps like Instagram, where users regularly upload their intellectual property to the app, it is important to define who has ownership over the material and how, if at all, the material can be used.
  • Privacy Policy: Many website terms and conditions will also include a privacy policy that informs users how their personal data may be stored or used.
  • Payment Terms: If a website or app charges customers, the payment terms need to be clearly stated. This should also include how payments are made and if any payment data is stored.
  • Limitation of Liability: This section protects the owner of the website or app from any liability for damages that can occur while using an app. For example, a limited liability clause will protect the owner of a website if a user creates an offensive post.
  • Governing Law: Many contracts, website terms, and conditions included will include a clause about the contract's governing law. This is usually the state or country where the company’s headquarters is located.

Website Terms and Conditions Projects

Website Terms and Conditions Drafting

Website terms and conditions can be complicated documents that cover advanced technological terms and intellectual property and legal terms. For this reason, many websites and app owners choose to hire a lawyer to draft their website terms and conditions agreement.

The lawyer will meet with the client to learn about their business and what services their website or app offers. After gathering all important information, the lawyer will be able to draft a comprehensive website terms and conditions contract that protects the company from liability, protects their intellectual property rights, and is legally binding.

Website Terms and Conditions Review

While it isn’t recommended, some business owners choose to draft their own website terms and conditions agreement from a premade template. While these boilerplate documents cover most terms, they may not adhere to your state’s laws and aren’t customized to your business’s unique services.

Suppose a business owner chooses to draft their own website terms and conditions. In that case, they should at least have a licensed attorney review the document before using it. An attorney can review the agreement and ensure it follows governing laws and includes all pertinent information.

Website Terms and Conditions Review Cost

ContractsCounsel’s marketplace data shows the average cost to review a website terms and conditions agreement is $850 across all states and industries.

How Do Lawyers Charge for Website Terms and Conditions?

Hourly Rates for Website Terms and Conditions

Lawyers in all legal fields commonly use hourly rate fee agreements. Using this fee structure, a lawyer will bill a client for the number of hours spent working on a project at a set hourly rate. This fee structure ensures that a lawyer is compensated for all work done for a client.

ContractsCounsel’s marketplace data shows that the average hourly rate for a commercial real estate lawyer ranges from $150 - $350 per hour.

Flat Fee Rates for Website Terms and Conditions

Flat fee billing structures are becoming popular for contract drafting projects like website terms and conditions agreements. When using this fee structure, an attorney quotes a client a flat fee for the completion of the project. This fee is typically paid before the lawyer begins work.

The benefit of flat fee billing is that it provides certainty to the client on the total cost of legal fees. However, it is important to ensure the client knows what’s included with the fee before starting the project because additional services like consultations and revisions may not be covered.

ContractsCounsel’s marketplace data shows the average flat fee rate for a triple net lease agreement is $767.73.
