Why do you need Terms of Use?
Here is the answer

Whilst it might seem all too easy to dismiss the legal texts many routinely scroll through and agree to when using a website or a digital service, they’re fundamental to the proper regulation of the relationship between a service provider and their users.

If you provide services online a properly crafted bespoke set of Terms of Use by
Aviv Lazar & Co. will allow you from the outset to establish in practice, and enforce in law, the terms on which you are offering your service to users and guard you against any claims which could potentially be made against you – and cost you considerably - in the event they haven’t been properly excluded in a set of Terms of Use.

Terms of Use actually constitute a binding contractual agreement between your business and the users of any service including where offered as a website or mobile phone app and the following are some of the issues which chiefly ought to be dealt with by their issuance:


  1. Governing Law: 
    By placing your service on the internet, people from all corners of the world will likely be able to access it. The question arises which country’s legal system may try and hold you liable as a result of anything connected to your service? By issuing Terms of Use you’re able to indicate the legal system which governs your site and as such limit any liabilities to the law of Israel and limit any cases which may be brought against you to the Israeli courts.

  2. Limitation of Liability:
    What if something happens using your site? Perhaps it transmits a virus to a user’s computer? Perhaps some of the information has become outdated and someone relies on it? Without proper Terms of Use this can result in legal claims being made against you for any loss incurred by another party. By clearly excluding these and similar issues in the Terms of Use the investment in your business will save you money in the long-term.


  3. Intellectual Property:
    If you’re commercialising the service you have online, you’ll likely want to assert your ownership over the material on your site and be able to control how (or if) others can reproduce or utilise the work you have invested your time, effort, and money in creating.


  4.   Set User Standards:
    Will you need to delete account access if a user isn’t paying a subscription? What if their online conduct requires you to remove their access to maintain the good reputation of your site? By establishing the authority to do so and publishing the method by which such decisions will be applicable you can avoid any disputes which may make it to court later on.


  5. Make Provision for International Requirements:
    Are you based in Israel but using your site to connect with user clients overseas? This can pose issues if statutory requirements within those jurisdictions aren’t properly followed. Terms of Use can remedy this situation and even incorporate legally binding Privacy Policies such as that required for GDPR in Europe.
