Whether we’re downloading a new app, applying for a credit card or signing up to a new service, we often find ourselves faced with terms and conditions. In many cases, we quickly scan the terms and conditions, accept them and then instantly forget about them. Admittedly, these documents are often long, a little tedious, and rather boring.

First of all, they are not to be confused with privacy policies. These are required by law when personal data is collected such as email addresses, names and surnames and delivery addresses. The terms and conditions, on the other hand, is the agreement that establishes the rules that you, as a user, must accept in order to use an app, service, website, etc.

Even if you’re tempted to ignore them or to skim through them quickly, don’t! Here are a few reasons why you should always read through the contract before accepting:

  1. It is important that you know what you have committed yourself to.
  2. You need to know what your obligations are.
  3. It is essential that you know what penalties apply if you don’t meet those obligations.

Finally, as with any other service, knowing Actif’s terms and conditions helps you to always be well informed. And from now own, don’t forget to take a few minutes to read the terms and conditions, because it could save you trouble down the line!
