The "terms and conditions" section is a basic requirement on every website, which usually explains the legal relationship between the website and the customer, whether it consists of legal disclaimers; billing notices, privacy policies; refund policies; or any other details. The terms and conditions are listed on the website, are required to be accepted by the user. But the contents of a website's terms and conditions particularly are subjected to on the type of business in which it is engaged and the extent of its data collection, and which types of functions the website has, and so on.
If the website is in engaged in e-commerce through selling goods to customers, then the website probably needs a terms and conditions legal notice concerning the credit card billing, returns as well as refunds. As an instance, many websites allow users to return unused goods for up to 30 days after purchase. The website owner might want to include similar language in the website.
Also, there are other disclaimers that the website must make in terms and conditions page that depend on the website.
“30 Day Return Policy – Unused Goods Only - Returns are only accepted within 30 days of the date of purchase. Towards being qualified for a return, the item should be unused and in the same condition that the users received it. It should also be in the original packaging.

These products are identified on the website and during the ordering process as being non-returnable. Please do not send the purchase back to the manufacturer.”
“Once the user’s return is received and inspected, we shall send an email to notify the user that we have received the returned item. The website shall also notify the users of the approval or rejection of the refund.
