Terms Of Services

The Terms and Conditions page of a website hostingbsp.com act as a binding legal agreement between a website or mobile application and those who access the content on this website or mobile application. It is generally comprised of rules, terms, conditions, and other information which a user agrees to whenever any content covered under these terms and conditions is accessed. This information, which can sometimes be referred to as Terms of Use, Terms of Service, or the End User License Agreement, is decided upon by the owner of the website or mobile application, and is inherently agreed to by any users of this content, thereby protecting the owner against legal action from any users of the content. It is recommended to have a single set of Terms and Conditions for all content that is owned, and these rules should be created to govern all of this content. Having separate terms and conditions is not recommended, as the liability to the content increases as the amount of separate terms and conditions increases.

Nearly any type of digital content, regardless of the form of this content, should contain a Terms and Conditions page or End User License Agreement, as well as a privacy policy. Some examples of these are: websites, online blogs, e-commerce websites, desktop applications, and mobile applications. These are only a few examples of the vast array of digital content types which should contain these agreements. If there is question as to whether content should contain terms and conditions, it is normally better to err on the side of caution and provide one, as a lack of these conditions leaves the owner of this content open for potential legal action.

There are many aspects of a standard Terms and Conditions page, though the specific number and types of information contained in this page varies from website to website. It is up to the website’s owner how much and what information should be contained in the Terms and Conditions page. An example of a few of the most common sections contained in a Terms and Conditions page are as follows:

  • A Copyright Disclosure section. This section informs the content’s user that the content found within the website or other domain is copyrighted. Each piece of content contained in the domain which the owner wishes to copyright, should be detailed in this section individually. The most common items to copyright are product, company, or website names, logos and other graphic design work, and written content, although the owner of the website may provide copyright for any material presented on the website.
  • A Termination Clause. This section essentially gives the owner of the website permission to oversee and manage any third-party information placed on the website. The most common uses of this section are to provide notice that objectionable content postings, such as blog comments, may be removed by the owner, as well as provide notice that users abusing the content or violating terms may be banned.
  • A Governing Clause. This section briefly describes any legal legislation which is relevant to the content on the website or application. This section informs users on the various laws of the region or country of the website which are relevant to the content contained within.
  • An External Links Clause. This section is primarily meant to protect the owner against liability for content which is found off the website’s domain. This allows the website to safely contain links to other websites, while not being liable for the content contained at these links.
  • A Content Clause. This section, similar to the Copyright section, provides users of the site with a notice that they hold the copyright to any works they create. In addition, this section will also commonly give the website’s owner permission to use any content provided by users.
