Let's say I have a Billing website(1st website) for clients where a client makes an account and buys a plan.

Then what I do is create a website(2nd website) for that client's shop where his employees and his other customers register and use it.

So what I want to do is to say the following in the terms of 1st website:

"the Product, the Services, the Website -> refers to both sites".

Is it legal to do that ? If so how do I mention 2nd site as "the Product", "the Service" in the 1st site's terms.

  • Is it unclear what you think could be illegal? Please clarify. There is nothing wrong with establishing that some (or all) conditions apply to website A and website B. Sep 12, 2018 at 10:09
  • ok. So it means I can mention the domain name of the other website e.g "the Website" includes abc.com and xyz.com

so how do I mention 2nd site as "the Product", "the Service" in the 1st site's terms.

In the Terms and Conditions of the Billing (or "first") website, you could start with a section for Definitions. There you establish the meaning of terms used throughout the contract.

It is up to you to define "the Website" as including abc.com and xyz.com, or to assign labels to each one. Just make sure the scope and meaning of your clauses are very specific, since the doctrine of contra proferentem is applicable in contract law.

  • Can you just give me an example for the Website definition including both websites ? I know for the Company definition - CompanyName LLC, contractors and all data sources and suppliers, (collectively “CompanyName”, “we”, “us” or “our)

  • @Raj For instance, see https://stackoverflow.com/legal/terms-of-service, where it defines "Stack Overflow" or "Network" as "a set of related Internet sites and other applications for questions and answers, owned and operated by Stack Exchange, Inc. . ("Stack Overflow", "we" or "us"), a Delaware corporation". There really is nothing special, you would only be establishing labels as Stack Exchange does for ease of reference in the rest of the contract. Sep 12, 2018 at 10:58
