While it is not legally required, it is highly recommended to have a Terms and Conditions agreement for your website. These are essentially the rules that the user must abide by in order to use your site. It should not be written in a way that includes “hidden secrets” because that negates the point of the agreement. Everybody should have a clear understanding of what the rules are.
Typical things included in the Terms and Conditions are:
- Establish the governing law
- Warranty disclaimer
- Prevent abuse
- Establish ownership of the content
- Termination clause
These points should be clearly defined so that everybody understands what the expectations for use of the site are. To help ensure that there are no “hidden secrets” you should hire a skilled attorney to help you.
