If you’ve ever dealt with a lawyer (sorry), you know that we love our legal jargon. It makes us feel special. And the more jargon we use, the more special we feel. Kind of like the sole dog at a party. The labels “Terms and Conditions” and “Terms of Service” come up pretty often so what is the difference between the two?
Absolutely none. Yes, you heard it here first! Us lawyers created the two types of labels just for the fun of it and because it confuses the civilians. And what’s more fun than that?
What is a Terms and Conditions agreement?
Are Terms and Conditions required by law?
If your website offers the ability for individuals to purchase goods or services, not complying with consumer protection laws can lead to your Terms and Conditions not being enforceable. In addition, not having a Terms and Conditions agreement if you offer subscriptions, can lead to enforcement actions from the Federal Trade Commission.
While there are a few laws that require a Terms and Conditions, most businesses place them on their websites to reduce the risk of lawsuits and increased damages.
How can I get a Terms and Conditions for my website?
There are many ways to create a Terms and Conditions for your website or app. You could hire a privacy attorney, write them yourself, or find a proper Terms and Conditions generator that can craft one for you. Since privacy attorneys can be expensive and writing one yourself can be tricky, Terms and Conditions generators have become very popular.
Since this is a Termageddon blog, we highly recommend using Termageddon’s Terms and Conditions Generator.
