What are website terms and conditions?
Typically terms and conditions will define important and recurring words and explain the website businesses’ policies regarding the rights and obligations of users. For example, the terms might set out how website visitors can use the website or service, what payment (if any) must be made, and they may or may not include opt out language for users who stop using the service, depending on what the website does.
Why are website terms and conditions important?
Your website terms and conditions are important for two main reasons, first they affect how customers/users view and make use of your businesses’ website and second because they can give you certain legal rights and protections.
Your terms and conditions are important to your customer base, and your bottom line, because the terms let customers know what they are agreeing to when they make use of a businesses’ website. A good set of terms will clearly tell your customers what they will gain when using your businesses’ website and what that gain will cost them. The sense of security that clear terms convey to potential customers can help you attract their business, keep that business, and potentially lead to more business through referrals.
