Two Legal Must-Haves For Starting An Online Business

Terms of Service (TOS) and a Privacy Policy/Agreement (PA) are two essential elements of an online business.  The TOS lays out the terms by which users can visit and use a business’ website.  It also defines how commercial transactions will take place.  Basically, you will need this agreement to define the boundaries of the relationship between users and your website.

A PA details what kind of information is collected from visitors to your website and how your company intends to use that information (whether you will share that information with a 3rd-party and whether they can opt-out).

Links to both of these agreements should be conspicuously displayed on your website.
