Ideally, you should prompt your users to actively accept your terms, which can be done by using a clickwrap agreement in the form of a checkbox or button.
Table of contents
The ASX also includes a detailed list of what it considers prohibited uses of its website, though it's a much better idea to place these in an acceptable use policy:
The graphic design platform, Canva, offers software that is free to use with the option of purchasing premium memberships to access additional features. The interface allows users to use templates, graphics, and stock photos that are provided free of charge.
As you will see from the screenshot below, Canva summarizes in plain language the clauses of its agreement, which is helpful for people who may not be comfortable reading through what could be considered legalese.
Due to the variety of businesses that use Mailchimp to send emails to their subscribers and due to the fact that, as a simple service provider, it does not have direct control over the content that is sent through its platform.
Its legal policies page is very detailed and includes a separate acceptable use policy for even more details on prohibited uses to help them keep their network safe from abuse.
Saks Fifth Avenue
The retailer also includes a fairly detailed paragraph in which it addresses warranties, disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
Saks notably mentions that its website and its content is made available on an “as-is” and “as available basis”, specifies that products purchased on its website are subject to their respective manufacturer’s warranties and limits its liability to the amount paid by the customer for the product purchased on its website.
The Wall Street Journal
In this clause, The Wall Street Journal reserves the right to monitor and remove any user-generated content at their own discretion and without notice. It also specifies that by posting content on its platform, users grant The Wall Street Journal a royalty-free and perpetual license to use their content as detailed above.
