How to Add Terms and Conditions to Your WordPress Site

While you aren't required by law (even the GDPR) or any third parties to have a Terms and Conditions agreement (T&C), also known as a Terms of Service or Terms of Use, you should still consider including one with your WordPress site.

Here's why:

Terms and Conditions agreements can provide a number of really great benefits, such as giving you the right to restrict certain activities on your site and ban abusive accounts. You can also limit your legal liability.

The more complex your website is, the more beneficial a T&C will be. For example, if you allow users to sign up for accounts, allow user-generated content or sell things on your website, you're definitely going to want a T&C to help manage the use of all of those features and functions.

Now that you're convinced, it's time to add your T&C to your WordPress website. If you don't have a T&C yet, don't worry. We'll help you with that, too. Then, you'll be ready to follow these steps to add your T&C to your WordPress.

Our Terms and Conditions Generator makes it easy to create a Terms and Conditions agreement for your business. Just follow these steps:

  1. At Step 1, select the Website option or the App option or both.
