Why do I need terms of service?

Terms of Service (also called Terms & Conditions, Terms of Use or EULA - End User License Agreement) set the way in which your product, service or content may be used, in a legally binding way. They are crucial for protecting your content from a copyright perspective as well as for protecting you from potential liabilities.


  1. It is best practice to have the terms of service on it’s own page. Create a terms of service page if you do not have one already.

  2. In your page editor, click on the + icon on the top left.

  8. Another thing you may want to do is add a link to the terms of service page in your website’s footer. To do this, on WordPress’s main page, on the left navigation bar, navigate to Appearance > Menus.

    Appearance -> Menu

  9. If you do not have a footer menu already, click on “Create New Menu”.
