Application & Website Agreements

Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie’s Interactive Gaming Law Attorneys provide advisory services in the area of data security, information privacy, and intellectual property protection. Our attorneys routinely counsel website operators, application developers and online service providers regarding Terms of Service, End User License Agreements and Privacy Policies, which represent important legal documents for online businesses.

Terms and Conditions | End User License Agreements

Terms and Conditions (“T&C”) and End User License Agreements (“EULA”) represent contracts between operators and their users. By clearly establishing each party’s rights and obligations in connection with the use of a particular website or application, operators can effectively limit and create a defense against liability. These contractual agreements are vital to your company. When approaching your T&C and EULA, consider your website’s or application’s main purpose—does it provide information, entertainment, services or software? What possible issues may arise with the use of your website or application?

Privacy Policies

Privacy policies are one of the most important documents for online operators. A privacy policy provides specific information to users about the type of information the operator collects and how it will be used. Privacy policies not only provide users with information about data collection, protection and sharing practices but also enable operators to comply with privacy laws. Failing to adopt or abide by a privacy policy could leave you open to lawsuits and even criminal action.

In addition to preparing these legal documents, we monitor legal developments that can impact enforceability and work with clients to ensure their protection in an ever changing legal landscape.
