Dont make this one mistake when setting up your terms and conditions

If you’ve stumbled upon this post, you probably already have terms and conditions, or you’re about to create one. Well done! Though not always legally required, terms and conditions are always a good idea.

But are you sure you’ve created your document the right way? There’s one expensive mistake that people often make when it comes to terms and conditions.

Did you use a template?

Copying and pasting from a template can seem like a really good idea: it’s easy, cheap, and doesn’t require much effort.

Yet, it’s often not in your best interests.

📌 Why is this a mistake?

To put it simply, terms and conditions are a legally binding contract between you and your users. They help set your rules and are meant to protect you and your business from legal liabilities.

This means that your terms and conditions should contain all the required clauses to match your particular business model, processes and needs. A simple template cannot do that.

Even though they appear to be simple, terms and conditions are meant to meet incredibly complex and highly specific scenarios. Shoddy terms and conditions can leave you open to liabilities and lawsuits while giving you a false sense of protection.

I did use a template. How do I fix my terms and conditions?

👉 In general, if you can afford to, it’s always best to have a lawyer check your document. They can help you identify your processes and needs, and fix your terms.

👉 The next best option is to use a lawyer-crafted generator like iubenda, which offers a guided setup and lets you fully customize your document – adapting to multiple scenarios.
