Terms and Conditions

Legal warning

The explanations and information provided on this page are only general, rough explanations and information on how to write your own Terms and Conditions document. You should not consider this article as legal advice or recommendations on what you should actually do, because we cannot know in advance what specific terms you wish to establish between your business and your customers and visitors. We recommend that you seek legal advice to understand and develop your own Terms and Conditions.

Terms and Conditions: basics

That being said, the Terms and Conditions (“T&C”) are a set of legally binding terms defined by you, as the owner of this website. The T&Cs establish the legal limits that govern the activities of website visitors, or your clients, while visiting or participating in this website. The purpose of the T&C is to establish the legal relationship between site visitors and you as the owner of said site.

The T&Cs must be defined according to the specific needs and nature of each website. For example, a website that offers products to customers in e-commerce operations requires different T&Cs than the T&Cs of a website that only provides information (such as a blog, home page, etc.).

The T&Cs give you, as the owner of the website, the ability to protect yourself from legal liability, but this may differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, so make sure you take local legal advice if you are trying to protect yourself from legal liability.

What should be included in the Terms and Conditions document

In general, T&Cs usually address these types of issues: who is authorized to use the website, possible payment methods, a statement that the website owner may change its offer in the future, types of guarantees that the website owner offers to its customers, a reference to intellectual property or copyright issues (if relevant), the website owner's right to suspend or terminate a member's account, and much more.
