What is terms and conditions?
So what is Terms and conditions? Do you really know? Often they look so formal and complicated. I will explain it to you as simply as I can to you.
Terms and conditions are rules for use between you and the user. You set the rules for how a user can use your services, your information, your products etc. and what will happen if they do not agree or agree to these rules. Your aim is to protect your business.
If you want to download a PDF from a website with 10 best SEO tips for example, you normally have to fill out a form with your email so the website knows where to send the PDF. However, many websites have a checkbox where you have to agree to term and conditions before submitting the form and before they want to send the PDF to you. It means if you do not agree to the term and conditions the website do not have to send you their service. This is a way you can secure your website.
