Does an app need both Terms of Use and Privacy Policy?

Does an app need both Terms of Use and Privacy Policy? by @R44D

Answer by Raad Ahmed:

As others have mentioned, the types of policies you need will depend on what your app does and, perhaps, what it doesn’t do. I think it is really important for you to seek the advice of a legal professional to help you determine what legal disclosures are necessary for your app; a lawyer would be able to give you specific guidance tailored for your app.

I strongly suggest that you stay away from using language from policies found on the Internet because they are generic and there is no way to verify that they are suitable for your app. You don’t want to be in a situation where you relied on boilerplate language from a terms of use generator or a private policy generator and discover later down the road that the policies you’re using aren’t legally protecting you & your business. Noncompliance could lead to fines, litigation and other costly headaches that are avoidable if you go ahead and spend money on an attorney from the very beginning.
