Terms of use (often called “terms of service” or “terms and conditions”) are a set of rules and guidelines that govern the use of a website, app, or service. They outline what users can and cannot do with the service, and they also specify the rights and responsibilities of both the user and the provider of the service.

Some common topics that may be covered in terms of use include:

  • Prohibited uses of the service, such as using it for illegal activities or spamming other users
  • Intellectual property rights, including who owns the content and data on the site and how it can be used
  • Privacy and security, including how user data is collected, used, and protected
  • Liability and indemnification, which outlines the responsibilities of both the user and the service provider in the event of a problem or dispute
  • Changes to the terms of use, and the process for making changes in the future

It is important to read and understand the terms of use before using a website, app, or service, as they may include important information that could affect your rights and responsibilities.
