A clear, well-written terms and conditions agreement helps establish a better relationship between you and your website users. They know exactly what to expect, and get an insight into how you operate your online business.

In the past, you’d consult a legal team to draft a comprehensive set of terms and conditions. Now, you can enjoy the benefits of this must-have document with no time wasted.

Here’s how to add terms and conditions to your website the easiest way — with the help of Enzuzo’s free terms of service generator. 

 

How to Generate Terms and Conditions for Your Website

You don’t need hours of time and a stack of paperwork to complete your own terms and conditions. All you need is a handful of company details and a few minutes. 

Here’s how to generate terms and conditions for your website using our free generator. 

Add your company details

The first page you see will be this one, where you’re prompted to enter some basic company details. Here you’ll add your company name, mailing address, and website URL.

Company Info

Next, you’ll be asked to share further contact details. Enter your email address and phone number, so that people can reach you with any questions about your terms of service.

We’re all done with company details now! Let’s move on to the next step.

Set your governing law

Each jurisdiction will have a slightly different approach to what your terms of service should contain. In this step, we’ll ask what your governing law is and in which location any legal disputes would be governed.

Next, if it’s required based on your location, add a link to your privacy policy. If you don’t have a privacy policy already, try our free privacy policy generator

That’s all the details we need — now it’s all about finalizing your account so that you can save your policy.

Complete your account setup

Once you’ve finished adding your details to the terms and conditions template, you’ll be prompted to complete your account setup. After this, you can view, edit, and add your policy to your website at any time. 

 

How to Add the Terms and Conditions to Your Website

It’s easy to add your website terms and conditions with the help of our step-by-step guide. 

You won’t need expert level knowledge to do this — especially if you’re using a platform like WordPress or Webflow. If your website is built with custom code and you’re not comfortable editing it directly, ask your web support tech to handle this process for you. 

 

Let’s get started. 

  1. From your Enzuzo dashboard, navigate to your Terms of Service page.
  2. Click the green “Add to website” button at the top of the page.

  1. In the pop up dialog, click “Copy Code to Clipboard” to copy the code snippet to your clipboard.

  1. Open up your website builder, and create a new page. Name it something clear, like “Terms of Service” or “Terms and Conditions”.
  2. Create a HTML block to contain your code snippet.
    Note: If your website’s built in WordPress, use the Custom HTML block to add your embed code easily. If you’re using Webflow, you’ll want the Embed component instead.
  3. Save your new page. 
  4. Add a link to your new page to your website’s footer menu. 
  5. Your new terms of service page is now ready and visible!

Do You Need Terms and Conditions for Your Website? 

There’s no specific law that says you must display terms and conditions on your website. Unlike a privacy policy, that’s often required by privacy laws like the GDPR, displaying your terms and conditions (or terms of service) is completely up to you. 

While it’s not a legal requirement, we’d encourage you to consider having terms and conditions anyway. Having your terms visible to your users makes it easier to: 

  • Communicate your role, responsibilities, and legal requirements
  • Share what is expected of your users and online store customers 
  • Make statements about liability
  • Be transparent about how you operate
  • Establish a binding agreement between you and your users
  • Reference what was accepted in the future in a legal dispute

For these reasons, it’s worth listing your terms and conditions on your website. Additionally, you don't need to choose Shopify as the platform to build your eCommerce store with. It might help you in deciding which platform to use to better understand how much Shopify takes per sale.  

 

What to Include in Your Terms and Conditions

There’s no rule that says your terms and conditions must include any specific wording, sections, or disclaimers. However, they should set out your roles and responsibilities as the service or product provider, and what you expect from your users in return. Your terms and conditions can also outline any limitations and an exclusion of liability, as they provide a legal agreement between you and your users. 

 

Here’s what to include in your terms and conditions:

  • Introduction
  • Updates to your terms of service
  • A formal acceptance of the terms and conditions agreement
  • Your responsibilities
  • Prohibited activities
  • Website and content ownership
  • Intellectual property rights and copyright infringement
  • Rights of access
  • Company rights
  • Third-party links and content disclosure
  • Limitation of liability
  • Disclaimers, warranties, and indemnification
  • Governing law
  • Other matters
  • Contact information
