Terms and Conditions

The terms and conditions ("Terms") refers to a set of legal terms and conditions established by the owner of a website. They describe the general terms and conditions applicable to the activities of the visitors to the said website and the relationship between the website visitors and the website owner.

The terms and conditions should be determined based on the specific needs and nature of each website. For example, a website that offers e-commerce products to customers needs different conditions than a website that only provides information.

The terms allow the website owner to protect themselves against possible legal claims
