Terms of use of the app

The terms of use of the app are the foundation of any business built on a mobile or a web app. You should keep the terms of use in mind especially if you want to monetise your app. It doesn't matter whether it is the app download itself, In-App purchases or even just a higher level of features or support ↗ that is fee-based. Pricing and payment terms always deserve attention. Terms of use also deserve substantial attention when users upload their own content to the app and share it publicly. Last but not least, terms of use are essential for mobile apps published on the AppStore and GooglePlay.

Why terms

 

Why should you want terms of use for your app?

  • They fit perfectly with your GDPR. Running an app usually involves processing personal data ↗, and we can solve both of these issues for you at the same time when preparing the terms of use.
  • To keep the CTIA (Czech Trade Inspection Authority) happy. If the customer is a consumer, you should comply with the consumer protection legislation.
  • They limit your liability. What if the app doesn't work properly or has an outage?
  • They adjust the payment terms to suit your needs. Everyone likes something different; do you prefer subscriptions or retroactive payments? 
  • They will explain to the user how they can and cannot behave. Rules are important, especially if the app allows the sharing of user content.
  • They protect your copyright. So that the app is still yours.
  • They set the limits on quantity, territorial and any other restrictions

What should the terms of use look like? Is there a difference between terms of use, terms of business, or maybe an EULA? What should you look out for when posting terms and conditions on Google Play and the Appstore? When are you responsible for the content that users share in your app? And can you, or should you, somehow pre-filter it?

We discussed all this and some other topics with Pavel Čech ↗ in our Law in a Nutshell podcasts. Link to Spotify ↗ a Apple Podcasts ↗.
