Terms & Conditions
Terms and conditions (“Terms”) are a set of legal terms defined by the owner of a website. They set forth the terms and conditions governing the activities of the website visitors on the said website and the relationship between the site visitors and the website owner. Terms must be defined according to the specific needs and nature of each website. For example, a website offering products to customers in e-commerce transactions requires Terms that are different from the Terms of a website only providing information. Terms provide the website owner the ability to protect themselves from potential legal exposure.
Prevent abuse: With a Terms and Conditions page, you can outline the behaviours that you prohibit on your website, such as harassing and spamming other users or posting defamatory content.
Establish ownership of site content: A Terms and Conditions page can inform your users that you own the content on your site.
Limit liability: A well-written Terms and Conditions page can help prevent harmful lawsuits by establishing the conditions of the website. It can also help prevent your website from being held accountable for any errors or misinformation on your site.
