Terms of service

A Terms of Use agreement can be used for websites, SaaS apps, mobile apps, Facebook apps, APIs and more.

The purpose of a Terms of Use is to set the rules to which your users must agree to in order to use your website, mobile app, API etc

The agreement is useful to The Guardian to set the rules and guidelines for visitors, users and customers:

  • Registration: inform users that they must agree to a set of rules when they register on your website or mobile app
  • Disable or terminate accounts: inform users that their accounts can be disabled or terminated if abuses happen on your website or mobile app, e.g. spamming, swearing etc.
  • Owner of content: notify users that you, the company, is the owner of the content appearing on your website or mobile app – except in cases where other users can post content (upload, share, create etc.) where the users are the owners of such content
  • Changes to the agreement: users should be informed about upcoming changes to the agreement before the changes are applied.
  • DMCA: The Guardian is also informing owners of copyright content that they can submit a DMCA notice to the website if they found infringing content in their DMCA clause.
  • And more

These are only a few examples of what kind of clauses and disclosures you can add in this kind of agreement.

What is a Terms of Use

While a Terms of Use is recommended to have, it’s not mandatory by law as the Privacy Policy agreement is required.

This agreement serves a single purpose: to inform users of rules that they must agree to. A Privacy Policy must inform users about your privacy practices (what data you collect, why, how, etc.)

The definition of a Terms of Use agreement is simple:
