Terms and Conditions are the rules and guidelines for using a website or app. They serve as a contract between the product or service provider and the user. A Terms and Conditions agreement is not always required by law. However, your website’s Terms and Conditions can help protect your site from unacceptable user behavior.
Privacy policies explain how your website collects, uses, and shares personal information. Disclaimers are statements that limit your website’s legal liability for your customer’s actions. They can serve as a warning — for example, warning users to act at their own risk. A disclaimer can also declare important information, such as informing users that a specific page contains sponsored content.
Disclaimers can often be found in:
- Product warranties
- Website and email footers
- Terms and Conditions
Common types of disclaimers include copyright disclaimers, fair use disclaimers, and legal disclaimers.
- Copyright disclaimers protect your original content. If you have a website or blog and want to protect your content, consider using a disclaimer.
- Fair use disclaimers are also related to copyright issues. If you use content from other sources, you may need to consider a fair use disclaimer to protect your business from copyright infringement accusations.
- Legal disclaimers often state that information found on a website is for general educational purposes only and is not to be used as legal advice. If your site or blog gives advice, you may want to include a disclaimer to let users know that any information is for educational purposes only.
You can include a disclaimer in your Terms and Conditions, or as a stand-alone policy.
