Website Contracts can be used in many situations
Your online business will often need contractors – specialists in website design, app programming, online marketing, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), graphic design, etc. A clear and simple Website Contract will ensure you and your contractor are “on the same page”.
Don’t run the risk of not having a Website Contract
A handshake and verbal agreement are not enough – your online business is too valuable! What if:
- Your IP is stolen or copied?
- Your designer doesn’t meet the deadline?
- Your website has missing functionality?
- Your website is copied and re-used?
- You disagree on the price?

Is the Website Contract template right for me?
I’m just getting a simple website built …
You should still protect yourself. Building a website often turns into a major project, if technical difficulties are encountered or the scope changes. Make sure you have a solid agreement with your contractor with deliverables, timeline and payment schedule.
I’m using Upwork or oDesk …
The Upwork and oDesk Terms of Service protects them, not you. You should have your own agreement with your contractor.
I’m worried about keeping my idea secret …
You should be. Unless you have the right technical skills, you’ll need to hire a specialist. The Website Contract includes confidentiality clauses to keep your ideas secret.
I’m a website designer, coder, consultant, etc. …

What our customers are saying …
I needed insight and advice to help navigate through what to me were unchartered waters starting my first online business. And Vanessa delivered on both counts. But she also made me feel that it was as important to her as it was to me that we sorted out the best way forward and managed the embryonic relationships sensitively. Thank goodness I chose Legal123.
I purchased the Website Legal Package and paid a little bit more to have it customised to suit my unique needs. Legal123 were absolutely fantastic - very responsive and very helpful. I feel I got great value for money. My new web business now has all the Ts & Cs in place for just hundreds rather than thousands of dollars. I'll definitely turn to you the next time we require a legal template. Thank you!
After numerous conversations with some of Australia's leading Legal firms, I stumbled across Legal123. During the first few minutes of our conversation it was clear to me that Vanessa's knowledge around Website legalities was superior. Engaging Legal123 so early in the piece enabled our team to make many critical changes to the point where Vanessa now plays a pivotal role in our success. I couldn't recommend Legal123 more highly.
Outstanding. Love the speed and efficiency of getting the forms I needed!
Customer service is EXCEPTIONAL - great product to boot - saved us thousands.
Such a great model for obtaining business legal docs - if you know what you need, you can save serious money - customer service is fantastic as well.
Ease of use - Epic. Quality of products - Awesome. Support - Sensational. Will use them again - Are you kidding? Of course. Will recommend to friends - Already did!
Absolutely impressed with both the legal document package I purchased today and the subsequent customer service I received from Legal123 when I had an issue with the order. Great customer service and thanks heaps. You definitely made my day today.
I found the templates so easy and simple. Rather than spend hours on sites trying to determine what I needed, I simply purchased and uploaded and my site was finally ready to be launched. I would recommend this process to anyone.
