Terms and conditions

Disclaimer of Legal Liability

The clarifications and information provided on this page are only for the general and not very specific purpose of how to write your own Terms and Conditions documents. You should not rely on this article as legal advice or recommendations on what you should actually do, as we cannot know in advance what specific terms you want to stipulate between your business and your customers and visitors. We recommend that you seek legal advice if you need help understanding and creating your own Terms and Conditions.

Terms and Conditions - fundamental notions

That said, Terms and Conditions (“T&C”) are a set of legally binding terms defined by you as the owner of this website. The T&C establish the legal framework that governs the activities of website visitors, or its customers, during their visit or interaction with this website. The intent of the T&C is to establish the legal relationship between website visitors and you, the website owner.

The T&C must be established according to the specific needs and nature of each site. For example, a site that offers products to customers involving e-commerce transactions needs to have T&C that are different from the T&C of a site that only offers information (such as a blog, a forwarding home page, and so on).


T&C give you, as the website owner, the possibility to protect yourself against possible legal exposures. However, this may differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, so seek local legal advice if you wish to protect yourself from legal exposure.

What to include in the T&C document

In general terms, the T&C usually regulate the following issues: who can use the website; possible payment methods; a statement that the site owner may change its offerings in the future; the types of guarantees the site owner gives to its customers; a reference to intellectual property or copyright issues, where relevant; the site owner's right to suspend or cancel a member's account; and much more.
