You’ve got your nice website set up and you are ready to go! Most likely you’ve not covered all the basis with the terms of use. It’s quite common and a lot of business don’t bother. But you should! I get it, I mean it is exceedingly boring stuff, all that small print and bullet points. Yet without it, you could be liable for the miss-use of services and information. Now, it takes either a bunch of time to write these terms in the first place or a pricey solicitors bill and neither sound appealing. Luckily for you, I have a drafted a copy you can amend for use on your own website. Thank me later (or Buy me a Coffee)

Please READ and AMMEND these TERMS prior to use

Please change <Company Name> to your business name and anywhere else in < > brackets. You are reposble for checking theres terms once amemded are suitable for your business and how you oeprate.

Assumptions in this terms and conditions are that you are a Personal Training or fitness website with personal trainers and/or online personal training. If different you will need to read carefully and ammend accordingly before use.
