Terms of service (also known as terms of use and terms and conditions, commonly abbreviated as TOS or ToSToU or T&C) are the legal agreements between a service provider and a person who wants to use that service. The person must agree to abide by the terms of service in order to use the offered service.[1] Terms of service can also be merely a disclaimer, especially regarding the use of websites.
