Terms of Use

Establish clear guidelines and legal protections for your platform. Let us help get your users on the right page.


What are Terms of Use and why are they important for my website or app?

Terms of Use, also known as Terms and Conditions, are the rules that users must agree to follow in order to use your website or app. These terms are crucial because they legally protect your site, dictate user behavior, and limit liability. They also outline what users can and cannot do on your platform, providing legal clarity and control. It is worth getting a set of legal eyes to review your terms, or even better, use our standard terms and conditions. Start the process here.

What should be included in the Terms of Use?

Effective Terms of Use should cover areas such as user responsibilities, copyright and trademark notices, disclaimers of liability, payment terms (if applicable), privacy policies, and the process for dispute resolution. These sections ensure all potential user interactions are governed by clear legal standards. We find that the payment provisions, intellectual property provisions, and disclaimers of liability are usually far and away the most important terms to get right, and they are not necessarily the same from website to website.

How often should I update my Terms of Use?

It's advisable to review and update your Terms of Use regularly, especially as your business grows, technology evolves, or legal requirements change. If you start with a good set of terms and conditions, then likely the adjustments will be minimal and simply follow adjustments to your site or business model. However, if you've been operating a business with terms and conditions you made up, we highly recommend getting in touch and letting us move you to a sophisticated set. Start here.

Are Terms of Use legally binding?

Absolutely, so long as presented correctly. Terms of Use should give users a clear chance to review them—typically through a 'click to accept' or 'click-wrap' mechanism—and users should agree to them before using your site or service. This agreement forms a contract that both you and the user are legally obliged to follow. Start the process above and we'll give you our best click-wrap practices along with your terms.
