A Terms of Service agreement, often called Terms and Conditions (T&C) or End User License Agreement (EULA), is a contract between you (the service provider) and your users. This key document allows you to set the rules for how people can interact with your website, app, or service. For example, you can outline the right way to use copyrighted content, spell out the steps for suspending or ending a user account, and even the delivery times, returns, etc., if you run an e-commerce site.
