Let’s know what you think …
Unlike normal websites, we might don’t have full access to (and control over) the data in ours (WordPress and related Plugins)…
Personally, I’ve already made my own:
(P.S., I don’t mind if you copied the terms. I also welcome suggestions)

I love this post. I take it, it would be best to have something similar on my site. May I use a modified version of your post???
Thank you for the nice words, Esme. Yes, please feel free to use it. My pleasure.
Thank you so much. I will not use it verbatim, due to copyright, but use the general idea. Thanks so much for your approval Mohamad 🙂
I’ll be glad if something I came up with was of benefit to others. Feel free to use it and adjust it the way you want
Thank you, I was pondering this idea, had a portion of it in my Welcome&About page. Just published a Terms and Conditions page. If interested: Link: https://cookandenjoyrecipes.wordpress.com/about/terms-and-conditions/
Wow, that is great. Now, I’ve learned new things myself… 😉
Oh my thanks for the compliment. I thought I was using your idea and now you tell me that you’ve learned something from me 🙂
I always welcome learning from nice and intelligent people as your good self.
Mwah, blush blush.
Thank you. I need to make one of these.
I copied your post with very few modifications. Thank you very much
You’re most welcome, Lori. Thank you for your trust. I’m glad I was of a help here.
Most thought provoking, and because I use my site to promote my freelance work I guess it’s something I need to look into. Just another thing to add to my to do list. Thanks for the very timely reminder Mohamad. 🙂
You’re most welcome, Jess. I hope it was helping. If you offer services/products on your site, I believe terms are a must.
Yes, you are. My friend told me I should not have wrote one of posts, that it could be problematic. I feel better now.
You’ve given me food for thought. I’m a total newbie to blogging and am trying to learn all I can! I’m unsure if my blog needs t & c but I’ll figure it out. Thank you!
Thank you for your comment, Monica. Welcome to the blogging world. Everybody starts as newbie… I hope you become a pro someday soon and you create your own terms! 😉
Thanks! Blogging is a new journey for me. I had not thought about this.
Thank you for your thought. I hope it’d a be nice journey for you and your beautiful blog will be bigger…
Thank you for your kind words! I truly appreciate it!
Hadn’t considered this. Hmmm….
Thank you for your comment, Jacqui. For a famous writer as your good self, do you think those might be needed?
Mohamad, I absolutely love the paragraph about respect. This is a great idea. Being new to all of this, I hadn’t even thought about the need for this type of thing. Thanks so much!
You’re most welcome… I’m glad this is helping. Thank you and welcome to blogging world too 🙂
Hmm, I never thought of having terms and conditions of use for my blog. I’ll have to think on that. The only thing I would say about your terms is the idea of changing something in a contributors piece without notification. Just a “just to let you know” notification would probably be received much better. Just a thought. You may have a reason behind the term that I am not aware of, so feel free to let me know of just ignore the thought.
Thank you for the advice, Joanna. You’re right. I removed the part of modification.
