Terms of Service (TOS)

The Terms of Service are the legal terms by which the user must agree with in order to use the service in question. While not all web sites have a Terms of Service agreement between the site and the user–especially those that simply provider information like news sites or other general purpose information portals–sites where the user has an actual account and/or shares personal information (significant or insignificant) with the web site or service almost always have a Terms of Service in place that the user must virtually sign off on before using the service.

These Terms of Service agreements may include provisions for how the company is going to share the user’s information, whether nor not content created using the company’s services belongs to the content creator or the service, prohibitions on the use of the service, and other legal concerns.
