I'm new to legal terminology used in contracts. I'm trying to understand the difference between terms of a contract and clauses of a contract. All the sites have referred so far provide no clear distinction between the two and sometimes use terms and clauses interchangeably. I'm wondering if there is any difference between the two or not.
I found a similar question asked before: What's the difference between a clause, provision, condition and term? but it doesn't answers the question in the context of purchase or legal contracts.
Also, from a conceptual point of view, does a contract contain anything other than terms, name of the signing parties and clauses?
Thanks in advance.
