FAQ

TEMPLATES



WHAT KIND OF DOCUMENTS AND TEMPLATES DOES BELEGALLY OFFER?

We provide a selection of legal documents and agreement/contract templates that are used in business. Our focus is on providing templates that are needed in creative work and digital business.

WHERE ARE THE TEMPLATES APPLICABLE?

The starting point of creating these template agreements and contracts is jurisdiction neutral so that they work in the best possible way in cross-border situations. That means that they are not created in accordance with any specific jurisdiction’s rules or regulations unless specifically stated so. The principles of international contract law and business law are applied. This can be rather useful starting point for many parties to enter into an agreement (instead of unknown foreign laws). However, most templates are drafted to comply with relevant mandatory EU legislation (for example, the General Data Protect Regulation, “GDPR”). Some templates also include specific U.S. provisions, for example, the Privacy Policy template has some specific clauses. On the template product page, it is stated which jurisdiction-specific elements it contains. We always recommend you work with a local attorney to make sure the templates are as valid as possible in your jurisdiction.

ARE INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS LEGALLY BINDING?

Yes, the starting point is that they are as legally binding as any agreement. However, it is possible that some details may not be valid or enforceable in all countries. That’s why it is recommendable to get a local attorney to check the agreement to make sure it helds in that jurisdictions.

ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS OF USING INTERNATIONAL CONTRACTS?

Absolutely! If you are working with international clients, they are much more likely to be happy and accept contracts that are drafted by international principles instead of one country’s law. This provides a more neutral starting point to the relationship. Remember, the applicable law (the law that governs the contract) can still be your home country’s law – or any other, if the parties wish.

ARE TEMPLATES LEGALLY BINDING?

Yes, the legal templates sold by BeLegally are legally binding, provided that the agreement you are entering is lawful according to the laws of the relevant jurisdictions.

WHO HAS DRAFTED THE TEMPLATES?

Our templates have been drafted by the Co-Founder of BeLegally, LL.M Jemima Nyström. She is a Finnish lawyer who specialises in international e-commerce, intellectual property and marketing law. She has extensive experience in negotiating, drafting and reviewing all the agreements and documents we sell on BeLegally.com. She knows what is important in international and cross-border transactions and contractual agreements, as well as the substance of the agreements.

CAN YOU HELP ME TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT TEMPLATE FOR MY SITUATION?

Sure we can give you some guidance, although we cannot tell you simply “choose this”! Remember that we are not a law firm and cannot give you any legal advice. What we can do is tell you about the usual situations where the templates are used and how you can choose the best one for your situation. If you need guidance, we suggest that you give us an email at hello@belegally.com and we will get back to you soon. You can also call our customer service between 11 AM – 1 PM (UTC +2) on Mon – Fri.

WHY USE TEMPLATES?

BeLegally offers an affordable way for you to create binding legal documents, helping you avoid paying too much for high quality documents. Our documents are drafted by an experienced lawyer in the given areas of law but we want to keep the price tag affordable to all kinds of creatives and entrepreneurs.

HOW CAN I USE A TEMPLATE?

When you purchase a template, you are granted a license to use it for the purpose the template is made for, i.e. as an agreement with someone or in your internal or external business relations. You cannot share the template with others who are not part of that procedure where the template is used for. For example, if you buy social media contest rules, you can put it on your webpage because that is natural use for them. When you purchase an influencer agreement, you cannot send it to your friend who runs a business. If you are not sure, please contact us at hello@belegally.com and we will give you guidance.

CAN I CHANGE THE COLORS OR FONTS?

Yes, the templates come in .docx documents that can be edited with Word, Open Office and Google Docs. You can fully change the colours and fonts to match your branding – and even add your logo.

I WANT TO MAKE MY CONTRACTS PRETTY. CAN I DO THAT?

By all means! Add images, colours, graphics – whatever you like to make your contracts pretty. Many of our clients make their contracts more personalized, and why not. That doesn’t have any effect to the bindingness of them.

HOW DO I GET THE TEMPLATE I PURCHASE?

After completed payment, you will be able to download the template and instructions to your own computer. The template is in .docx form and instructions in .pdf form.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
