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 websiteís 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 contentís 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 websiteís 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 websiteís owner permission to use any content provided by users.
