If you’re reading this, you may be thinking that your life has come to an all time low, that everything is dull and you’re just a straight boring person now. But have no fear, you’re not! I promise! This may not be the most fun topic, but it’s an important one and no matter what people think when they see this on your screen, you’re a smart person for looking into this and that means you are doing pretty well. You’ve got a full blown website to worry about!
What are Terms and Conditions?
How will Terms and Conditions Benefit Me?
A Terms and Conditions page or naggy drop down on your site isn’t required by the law - the feds aren’t going to come and get you because you’re not begging your users to “AGREE”. But these terms can be helpful not only to your customers - who will in some way appreciate being informed of what’s going on while they’re on your website - but also to you. Here a couple of ways how:
Protect your Content
Limit your Liability
Where should I get Terms and Conditions?
As long as you’re aware of the standard parts of a Terms and Conditions then a generator may be fine. Typical sections may include an Intellectual Property Clause, the Governing Law (this is just to say hey we’re located in New York and we abide by NY’s laws), and limits on what users can do. From here you need to know whether your company should have a termination clause or something about not being responsible for the content on other websites that you may be linking to in your content.
All this being said, we’re not lawyers here at Firon, but if you need help with your website - including talking about Terms and Conditions and other not so fun but important things - reach out.
