Terms and Conditions for Wix Websites

You’ve created your Wix Website. Nice!

But now you need to set up a Terms and Conditions document.

Don’t worry. We’re here to help.
In this article, we explain what basic Terms and Conditions should include, and how to add Terms of Service to your Wix Website.

Terms and Conditions for Wix Websites

Why do you need Terms and Conditions?

The purpose of Terms and Conditions or Terms of Service is primarily to protect you and your business from legal liabilities and set your rules – clarifying the conditions for using your service or accessing your products.

They are basically a contract between you and your users, and therefore a legally binding document.

Terms and Conditions can help you deal with problems and are also useful to prevent them in the first place: for instance, disclaimers and limitations of liability limit your responsibility and define the conditions under which you may be held liable.

That is why you should seriously consider adding them to your website.

Since you’re using Wix, you could be running a blog, a website showcasing your work, or even an online store.
If the latter is your case, then Terms and Conditions may be mandatory for your business, as they also often contain legally required information related to conditions of sale and disclosures on methods of payment, shipping, delivery, withdrawals, and cancellation conditions, etc.

However, whether your website engages in commerce or not, it’s always advisable to have a professional Terms of Service document in place on your website or app.

Now, let’s have a closer look at what to include in a Terms and Conditions document.

What should basic Terms and Conditions include?

Your Terms and Conditions document should be shaped around your specific needs, so you should choose the clauses to include carefully.

Generally speaking, though, for your Terms of Service to be effective, you should, at the very least:

  • properly identify yourself and your product/service (users must be able to reach you with questions regarding policies or operations);
  • describe the service that your site provides and how it should be used (to avoid liability: you have no way of knowing all the potential ways in which your product or service might be used or misused); and
  • ensure that it’s always up-to-date and immediately inform users when it’s updated or changed.

While the full content may vary based on the particulars of your business, Terms of Service typically include these elements, too:

  • Identification of the business and contact information
  • Description of the service that your site/app provides
  • Information on risk allocation, liability, and disclaimers
  • Warranty/Guarantee information (where applicable)
  • The existence of a withdrawal right (if applicable)
  • Safety information, including instructions for proper use (where applicable)
  • Terms of delivery of product/service (where applicable)
  • Rights of use (if applicable)
  • Conditions of use/purchase (eg. age requirements, location-based restrictions)
  • Refund policy/exchange/termination of service and related info
  • Info related to methods of payment (where applicable)
  • Any additional applicable terms

Despite how simple they may appear, Terms of Service are meant to meet incredibly complex and highly specific scenarios. That’s why we strongly suggest that you avoid writing your Terms and Conditions yourself or using a basic template. Instead, seek the services of a legal professional, or use reliable online tools, like our powerful laywer-crafted Terms and Conditions generator.

How to add Terms and Conditions to your Wix Website

Once you have your Terms and Conditions document, you need to add it to your Wix Website.

We’ll show you using iubenda’s tools, but you can follow this guide even if your document was not generated with our Terms and Conditions generator.

You have two ways to do it. You can either:

  • add a direct link to your Wix site that will then lead your users to your iubenda-hosted Terms and Conditions; or
  • directly embed the Terms and Conditions text into your Wix page.

Keep in mind that whatever method you choose, it’s a common best practice to place the link to your Terms and Conditions in the footer of your website (as we’ll show you below).

Direct link

Access your iubenda dashboard, click on [Your website] > Terms and Conditions > Embed and copy the Terms and Conditions URL you find under the Use a direct link tab.

Now go to your Wix editor, add a text link to your footer (or edit an existing one) and name it “Terms and Conditions” or “Terms of Service”.

Paste the privacy policy URL in the link settings Web Address field, and you’re done.

Direct text embedding

The direct text embedding option makes your Terms and Conditions look as if it were natively a part of your own Wix website. Access your iubenda dashboard, click on [Your website] > Terms and Conditions > Embed and copy the code under the Embed the text in the body tab.

Now go to your Wix editor, click on Menus & Pages > Add Page, name it “Terms and Conditions” and click Done (to avoid showing the page link in the main menu, select Hide from menu). Next, click on Add > Embed > Custom Embeds > Embed a widget > Enter code and add your snippet.

Lastly, add a text link to your footer (or edit an existing one) and name it “Terms and Conditions”. Choose the terms page in the link settings, and you’re done.
