My training never ends. Websites, the laws concerning them and the way people use them continue to change. Now, it is highly recommended that every website have a Privacy Policy/Statement and a Terms and Conditions page. This is mainly to protect the owner of the site. I found this great article that I hope you will find useful. 

You are in process of building a beautiful website for your business, when the developer asks for your Terms and Conditions. You’ve spent weeks perfecting the landing page messaging, your bio, and other copy. But what about that legal fine print you see linked to the bottom of every website? You doubt anyone will ever read it, so do you really need to create a Terms and Conditions page for your website?

Undeniably the dullest page on your website, the Terms and Conditions page sets the rules for using your website. While most websites seem to have one, there’s actually no legal requirement for defining terms and conditions. However, if you are gathering user’s personal data, you are required to have a stated Privacy Policy.Terms and Conditions may not be required by law, but it’s still a smart thing to include. These pages can limit your liability should a customer take you to court, as well as protect your rights to the content contained in your website. Considering a court will look at your website terms to determine the contractual terms between you and the customer, you’ll want to take this page seriously enough for it to hold up in court.
