1. Website terms and conditions
Website terms and conditions have 4 basic functions: (i) helping website operators to comply with the law; (ii) reducing legal risk by disclaiming or limiting responsbilities and liabilities; (iii) establishing rules relating to the use of the website; and (iv) defining the contractual obligations owed by the user to the operator and vice versa. Although we have a wide range of terms and conditions designed for particular types of website, many websites do not fit neatly into any category. Consequently, these more generic templates are among our most popular documents.
2. Non-disclosure agreements
Non-disclosure agreements come in two basic flavours. First, there are unilateral or one-way agreements which protect the information of only one of the parties.

Use these non-disclosure agreements to protection your confidential information and to facilitate open communications with business partners.

The parties sign the statement of work, thereby agreeing to the terms and conditions. This form of contract may be more suitable where the consultancy wants to avoid or discourage the negotiation of contract terms.

8. Software licence agreements
Copyright protects software and to use software legally a person needs a licence. These software licence agreements require that the licensor deliver or make available the software to the licensee.

In consideration for grant of a licence, the licensee must pay a one-off licence fee or ongoing licence fees to the licensor.
9. SaaS agreements
These are software-as-a-service (SaaS) agreements designed to regulate the legal relationship between a provider of hosted or cloud software on one hand and its business customers on the other hand.

If terms will be imposed by the services provider upon the customer, and the customer will have no opportunity to suggest alternative terms, then you should consider our SaaS terms and conditions (or, for highly commodified or consumer-oriented services, cloud services terms and conditions) instead.
