A moderately interactive website is a website allow for some exchange of information between a user and the website. Whether such a website is sufficient to create personal jurisdiction depends on the level of interactivity and the commercial nature of the exchange of information.
In Boppy Co. v. Luvee Prods. Co., the court addressed a moderately interactive website. To initially determine the type of website, the court considered the level of interactivity and the commercial nature of the exchange of information occurring on the website. Concluding that the site was moderately interactive, the Court ruled that the website, by itself, did not support purposeful availment of the forum. The court noted, however, that in some circumstances a moderately-interactive website, especially if combined with other evidence of purposeful availment, could be sufficient to support personal jurisdiction. Thus, to determine whether a moderately interactive website is sufficient for personal jurisdiction a court must have specific evidence about the website and how it is used.
