FAQs


A terms and conditions policy, also known as terms of service or terms of use, is a legal document that is developed to protect the company. It tells your customers what will be legally required of them if they use your service (including websites and mobile apps).


A terms and conditions policy is not required by law like a privacy policy. However, if a legal dispute arises, a terms and conditions policy may help a company in a court of law.


A terms and conditions policy is often a webpage that is linked from the footer of a website, along with the privacy policy. The footer is a consistent design element that is seen across all pages of a website.
