Term of services
Term of services also known as ‘Term of use’ sometime just ‘Terms.’ some website abbreviate it as ‘TOS’
Even TOS also can be merely your disclaimer but it’s better to have it separately. Is important to let your visitor know terms of using your website that they are agree for example things like;
