Link to other websites
Sometimes, when you visit some service or product based websites and you place an order online. Suddenly for some reason, you wish to cancel the order. Some websites and apps give you the provision to cancel the order within a limited time. Some websites don’t provide you with the option to cancel the placed orders. And in some cases, the website will not allow you to cancel the order placed only on seasonal times like Diwali sale, end of season sale, Christmas time, New year season, etc. Cancellation policy outlines all such terms and conditions about the cancellation of an order (service/product) placed.
The terms and conditions which refer to the processing of the refund of the customers are called the refund policy.
Normally, a refund is being used and is expected in the following two cases :
- After receiving the product, the return of the product takes place due to the disliking of the product or damaged product or produced the wrong product or any other reason.
- Cancellation of the order placed on the website/application, for which the payment is already made online.
Refund policy will consist of all the necessary details on how the refund will take place, the process, procedure of it, etc. in a detailed manner.
What are Terms of Service?
The rules and regulations that are attached to a piece of software by the service provider are called the Terms of Service (ToS). It is a legal agreement between the provider of the service and the user who wishes to use it. You can also apply to Web-based services and products. When a piece of software or Web-service of the provider appends regulations to these software or service items, those ordinances are known as the terms of service. Whenever you click service or software, firstly, you will have to agree to the regulations mentioned in the Terms of Service, since ToS is a common agreement that every service will have in this digital growing world.
ToS and End-user licensing agreements (EULA) are very similar. The difference between the two is in the products to which they are attached. EULA is used in software products, such as video games, whereas ToS is applied to people utilizing a service. Terms of service can be used with virtually every type of software, such as programs dedicated to graphic design and word processors.
A ToS agreement can cover a wide range of elements such as:
- Accountability provisions
- Privacy policies
- Opt-out provisions
- Liability provisions
To draft the best terms of services, you can refer to a professional or a CA or can obtain legal advice too. A term of service agreement can outline a process where the users will help resolve their grievances. Generally, a ToS agreement defines the prohibited user actions i.e. the actions that a user shouldn’t be doing. For example, users shouldn’t post offensive content. In that regard, a ToS agreement for a specific service would have this mentioned in their terms i.e. offensive content will be prohibited and actions might be taken against. The regulations and conditions depend on each service and website. Not all websites have the same Terms of Service. Typically, a ToS agreement acts as a contract between a service provider and the people or the users who are using the service.
Terms Of Service
All service producers should let their clients know about the conditions below which the services are rendered. To keep things transparent, these conditions are informed through a set of terms-of-service, which lays the boundaries and the legal liaison between both parties. Frequently used by online service providers, the contract is legally confining and can be changed without giving prior announcements. Therefore, every online website must have terms & conditions mentioned on their website.
