Online terms and conditions are a contract between you and people visiting your website. This is the agreement that sets the rules and guidelines that users must agree to and follow in order to use and access your website. We recommend obtaining legal advice before posting terms and conditions on your website.
What are the advantages of online terms and conditions?
Visitors and users of your website are automatically subject to the rules stated in the terms simply by being on your website.
They specify what actions will and won’t be tolerated;
They specify that you may remove anyone from your website/portal if they are breaking your rules;
They may identify in which jurisdiction disputes will be resolved.
They inform your users that you are the owner of content, logo, design of the website, and other intellectual property, to help deter theft of your IP.
If you own an online store, a returns and cancellation policy as well as payment terms help avoid future disputes regarding when/how the client is supposed to pay.
