Do you need terms and conditions for your Squarespace website?

Often privacy laws, like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), require you to have a privacy policy listed on your website if you handle personal data.

That’s not the case when it comes to terms and conditions (or terms of service) — there’s no requirement for you to publish these, or guidelines on what they need to include. 

However, publishing your terms and conditions on your website or online store makes it easier for you to: 

  • Communicate your responsibilities and requirements
  • Set out what you expect from your users and customers
  • Cover warranties and statements that limit liability 
  • Demonstrate transparency about how you operate
  • Create a binding agreement between you and your users
  • Establish a reference point for any legal disputes

Think of your terms and conditions as a key legal document that outlines your ownership and gives you protection over what you publish on your website. With our free generator it only takes a few minutes to create your terms, so it’s worth investing in.


What to include in your Squarespace website terms and conditions

While there are no rules that say your terms must feature certain elements, we think there’s a standard structure that’s helpful for Squarespace website and ecommerce store owners. 

Here’s what to include on your Squarespace terms and conditions web page: 

  • Introduction
  • Terms of service updates
  • Acceptance of the terms and conditions
  • Your responsibilities
  • Prohibited activities
  • Website and content ownership and rights
  • Intellectual property rights and copyright infringement
  • Rights to access
  • Company rights
  • Third-party links and plugins disclaimer
  • Limitation of liability
  • Disclaimers, warranties, and indemnification
  • Governing law
  • Other matters
  • Contact information
