The personal data provided on the website or mobile application can be at times misused unless otherwise it is managed and directed.

The rules and regulations that are connected to a piece of software by the service provider are called the Terms of Service (ToS). It is a legal agreement between the provider of the service and the user who wants to use it. You can also employ Web-based assistance and products. When a piece of software or Web-service of the provider appends regulations to these software or service items, those ordinances are known as the terms of service. Whenever you click service or software, firstly, you will have to agree to the regulations mentioned in the Terms of Service, since ToS is a common agreement that every service will have in this digital growing world.

FAQs
What are the terms and services?

Terms and service is a page on a website that sets out the rights and responsibilities of anyone using the site. It effectively forms a contract between the site and the user.
Terms and conditions often include an explanation or definition of key terms used in the terms, and outlines the legal limitations of responsibility of the website owner for any damages or harmed incurred during usage of the site.

What is Privacy Policy?

A contract that details and specifies the length to which a person can use your information, acknowledge and manage the same is a Privacy Policy. It verifies the privacy policy for a website, firm or company on accumulating and exposing information about a client or guest. The guidelines should detail what information is received, kept classified or shared with or sold to other firms, researchers or sellers. In an e-commerce business, it is compulsory to have a privacy policy for websites on their company’s/firm’s websites.

Who needs terms and conditions and why?

Unlike a privacy policy, terms and conditions are not a legal necessity. However, it is recommended that every website incorporates one as it forms the legal basis of the site's relationship with the user.

Benefits of Terms of Service

All service producers should let their clients know about the conditions below which the services are rendered. To keep things transparent, these conditions are informed through a set of terms-of-service, which lays the boundaries and the legal liaison between both parties. Frequently used by online service providers, the contract is legally confining and can be changed without giving prior announcements. Therefore, every online website must have terms & conditions mentioned on their website
