Getting comfortable with the verbiage is half the battle in understanding the law. This notion is certainly true with the internet law field. The niche is full of a variety of terms you find nowhere else. As an internet lawyer, I can tell you many online operators get caught up on what to call the legal terms on a platform be it a website, app, plugin or another property. Let’s clear up this issue.
There really is none.
You can use any of the three designations as the title of the terms on a website, app or another platform. The critical issue is the language contained in those terms. To bear this out, consider the titles used by three significant sites for their terms:
- Facebook – Terms of Service
- Spotify – Terms and Conditions of Use
Of particular interest is the fact Facebook owns Instagram. Despite this, the sites use two different titles for their terms.
