WHAT ARE THEY?
A disclaimer goes on your website (usually as its own page in your footer) to let your visitors know who you are, what you do, and what you don’t do. You’ll address liability issues, what people should/shouldn’t do with the info they find on your site, and so much more. A disclaimer sets the stage to protect you, your website, and your business practices online.
Terms & Conditions are the rules of your website, services, & products. It lets users know the lay of the land. What’s your return policy? What kind of payments do you accept? Do you have rules that people need to follow on your site? What about your intellectual property rights? It’s also your time to set out your disclaimers, limit your liability, and let people know they need to use their head before trying things you recommend. That kind of stuff. And so, so much more.
DO I NEED THEM?
- Collect email addresses and/or names for your email list
- Have a contact page on your site
- Send out emails to your list
- Run surveys, contests, giveaways or anything else that collects ANY personal info from people (name, email address, address, phone number, etc.)
You might not be legally required to have Terms & Conditions and a Disclaimer, but you should. It’s your chance to limit your liability (aka. protect yo’ self) and make disclaimers. It’s also your chance to let people know what they can & can’t do with your stuff and your site. If you sell products or services on your site, you’ll definitely want your customers to check off a Terms & Conditions page before buying! Super important stuff, people.
