1. What Are Mobile App Terms and Conditions?

Mobile app terms and conditions, also referred to as app terms of service or app terms of use, explain the rules, requirements, restrictions, and limitations that users must abide by in order to use a mobile application. Specifically, they act as a binding contract between you and your users. This contract helps protect the rights of both parties.

Business owners and app developers often use the same terms and conditions for both their website and mobile applications in order to keep their terms consistent across all platforms.

App terms and conditions help protect the owner’s intellectual property, and allow them to prohibit unwanted user activity and terminate user accounts that violate their terms.

How Are App Terms and Conditions  Different From A Disclaimer or Privacy Policy?

App terms and conditions are different from disclaimers and privacy policies because terms and conditions outline your rights and rules for your app, whereas disclaimers help reduce legal liabilities and privacy policies disclose your data handling practices.

Unlike terms and conditions and disclaimers, privacy policies are often required by law.

2. Are Terms and Conditions for My Mobile App Required?

No, terms and conditions for your mobile app are not legally required. However, including terms and conditions on your mobile app is strongly recommended, as they give both you and your end-users certain advantages.

While it may be tempting to use the terms and conditions of one of your competitors, it is advised that you do not copy the policies of another website.

How Mobile App Terms and Conditions Benefit You

Mobile app terms and conditions benefit you and your users by allowing you to establish and maintain your rights as the app owner. They also help users understand what is expected of them when using the app.

Here are some benefits of having app terms and conditions:

  • Protection from abusive users: You have the right to suspend or delete the accounts of abusive users who violate your app’s terms and conditions. Prohibited activities could include copyright infringement, spamming other users, and general misuse of your app.
  • Arbitration over litigation: You can choose to settle disputes via arbitration, which can be more efficient and cost-effective than litigation.
  • Limited liability: This will vary from case to case, but including disclaimers in your terms and conditions can help limit your liabilities if disputes arise.
  • User benefits: Your terms and conditions agreement should explain the finer points of your app to the user, like how payment processing works, what kind of behavior is expected of users, and how to contact customer support. It should also tell them what rights they have as a user.

Having terms and conditions for your app is best for your business interests and users’ convenience.

3. App Store Terms and Conditions Requirements

App stores have specific requirements for app developers when it comes to terms and conditions agreements. How this affects your mobile application depends on which platform you choose to use.

It should be noted that the most common legal agreement for mobile apps is the end-user license agreement (EULA).

This agreement grants the purchaser the right to use the software. Currently, the two most common platforms to purchase and develop apps are Apple and Google Play.

Apple’s Terms and Conditions Requirements

Apple provides a standard EULA that the user accepts upon downloading an app. You can choose to use Apple’s default agreement, or you have the option of writing your own.

Apple EULA example

Terms and Conditions Requirements For Android Apps

Google Play’s stipulations require app developers to acknowledge Google’s right to use their own “Developer Brand Features…solely in connection with the distribution and sale of Developer’s Product through Google Play.” This grants Google certain privileges regarding your brand as long as you use their app store.

Google Play app terms and conditions example

4. Common Clauses to Include in Your App Terms and Conditions

To create an app terms and conditions agreement, there are some common clauses you should be aware of. Let’s take a closer look at some of these clauses.

Proper or Expected Usage

This clause explains how your app is intended to be used, and what users are expected to do when they use it. Setting boundaries for app use allows you to take action in the event that a user misuses your app.

Prohibited Rights and Responsibilities of Uses

In addition to laying out rules for proper use of your app, you should also clearly outline what users can not do on your app. For example, users may be prohibited from spamming, copyright infringement, or collecting data without authorization.

Intellectual Property Protection

This clause protects your intellectual property by informing users who the proprietor is, and identifying what your intellectual property consists of.

Accountability

You should inform users that they will be held accountable for their actions and conduct when using your app.

Payment Details

Provide clear explanations of the payment processes and payment details for your app. Topics to address might include subscription fees, payment methods, cancelation, and promotional offers.

Disclaimers and Warranties

Let users know if your products come with warranties, or if you offer refunds. Link to your return policy is you have one, or a no refund policy if you offer goods and services but no refunds.

To reduce legal liabilities related to app use, include a limitation of liability disclaiming that you’re not held accountable for potential losses, and injuries due to app use.

Account Termination

If a user decides to delete their account, explain step-by-step how they are to do it.

This clause can also be used to declare your authority to terminate or suspend accounts of users who violate the terms and conditions.

Terms and Conditions Updates

You need to inform users if and when you make changes to your app, and explain how these changes will affect them.

5. Terms and Conditions By App Type

As the complexity of apps vary, the terms you include in your agreement will vary as well. Let’s look at the standard terms and conditions agreements for three categories of apps:

1. Simple apps

These apps have a simple function and are easy to use, such as clock or dictionary apps. Common clauses for simple mobile apps include:

  • Ownership of content
  • Right to change the app at any time
  • Prohibited uses
  • Warranty and liability disclaimers
  • Right to terminate user accounts

2. Software as a Service (SaaS) Apps

These apps are more complex because they rely on an external cloud to bring their service to users, such as Google Docs or Instagram.

Because these apps are often content-sharing platforms, SaaS terms and conditions commonly include a clause addressing user-generated content.

Your terms and conditions should go over ownership rights and rules for user-generated content. For example:

  • Users maintain ownership of the content they create
  • App owner can restrict abusive behavior
  • App owner can delete inappropriate user-generated content
  • App owner can terminate users’ accounts for violations of the terms of use

3. Ecommerce Apps

Apps that are used for ecommerce have two main purposes: they either sell products from the app itself, or they connect users who are interested in buying, selling, and trading amongst themselves via the app’s platform.

Your ecommerce terms and conditions  should go over:

  • How different types of transactions will be handled
  • Payment terms
  • Your shipping policy
  • Your return and refund policy

6. Getting User Agreement to Your App Terms and Conditions

To ensure that users see and agree to your app terms and conditions, make sure they are easy to find, or get users to agree to your terms before they can proceed using your app.

There are three common ways to get user consent to your terms:

1. The Clickwrap Method

Many mobile apps implement the clickwrap method to guarantee that users are aware of their terms and conditions. This method gets users to manually agree to your mobile app’s terms before they are permitted to use your app, as seen in the example below.

Facebook Terms and Conditions Example

2. The Browsewrap Method

The browsewrap method assumes that users accept the terms and conditions by simply “accessing or using the Services,” as is implied in Uber’s agreement below. To make sure users can find the agreement, most apps hyperlink it to a main page or homepage.

Uber Terms and Conditions Example

3. The Consent Banner Method

The consent banner method combines elements of both clickwrap and browsewrap. Consent banners are less intrusive than clickwrap as they still allow users to access your mobile app, yet they are more binding than browsewrap as they don’t assume consent.

These banners appear at the bottom, top, or either side of a user’s screen and include an unticked checkbox or a button asking for user consent to your terms and conditions.

screenshot of the consent banner on the termly website

While a banner can make users aware of your terms and conditions in an obvious way, note that banners aren’t mandatory. You can simply link your terms and conditions in your app’s footer or menu.

7. Mobile App Terms and Conditions Samples

App terms and conditions differ in appearance and content depending on the purpose of the app. Below are some good examples of mobile app terms and conditions agreements.

HoKo Buy

HoKo Buy is an ecommerce app that employs the browsewrap method. By downloading and registering on the app, the user is agreeing to their terms of use.

HoKo Buy Browse Wrap Example

Clash of Clans

As soon as a user downloads the Clash of Clans app, they are prompted to accept the “Terms and Privacy Policy.” This clickwrap method will not allow users to proceed to play on the app until they agree to their terms of service.

Clash of Clans Terms and Conditions Example

Alarm Clock for Me

SaaS app Alarm Clock for Me has a feature that requires users’ permission for the app to use Location Services.

Alarm Clock for Me Terms and Conditions Example

Although the terms and conditions aren’t available on the app itself, the app company provides an EULA  that applies to all their apps, products, and services on their website’s terms of use page.

Apalon App EULA example

Viber Messenger

Viber also prompts the user to accept the terms and conditions before proceeding to use the app, but you can’t view it on the app itself.

Viber Terms and Conditions Example

Like many other apps, Viber posts its terms of use on their website, and they also have their own EULA.

Viber Terms and Policies Example

Photofy

Photofy is a SaaS app that encourages and thrives on user-generated content. Because Photofy depends so much on its users, they need a sturdy terms and conditions agreement to ensure that users follow the rules when using their service.

Photofy requires users to accept their terms before they can create an account.

Photofy Terms and Conditions Example

However, users can also find the terms of service and privacy policy in the app’s “About” section.

Photofy Terms and Conditions example

8. How to Write Terms and Conditions for Mobile Apps

Although mobile app terms and conditions aren’t legally required, it’s a best practice to have them for your app as they serve as a legally binding agreement that benefits you and your users.

App terms and conditions often feature the following clauses:

  • Proper app usage
  • Prohibited activities
  • Limitation of liability and warranty disclaimers
  • Account termination
  • Intellectual property protection

Display your app terms and conditions in prominent places on your app, or get user agreement to your terms and conditions using clickwrap, browsewrap, or a banner.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

[Choose one of the options below]

Option 1: Any legal action of whatever nature brought by either you or us (collectively, the “Parties” and individually, a “Party”) shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in [name of county] County, [name of state], and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non convenient with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) are excluded from these Terms of Use. In no event shall any claim, action, or proceeding brought by either Party related in any way to the Application be commenced more than [# of years] years after the cause of action arose.

Option 2: Informal Negotiations

To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms of Use (each a “Dispute” and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least [# of years] days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.

Binding Arbitration

If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org.

[If such costs are determined to by the arbitrator to be excessive, we will pay all arbitration fees and expenses.] The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in [name of county] County, [name of state]. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in [name of county] County, [name of state], and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non convenient with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) are excluded from these Terms of Use.

In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Application be commenced more than [# of years] years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

Option 3: Binding Arbitration

Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in [name of county] County, [name of state], and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of, personal jurisdiction, and forum non convenient with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) are excluded from these Terms of Use.
