<style>
    label {
        display: block;
        margin: 10px 0;
    }
</style>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js"></script>
<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $('form input[type="submit"]').prop("disabled", true);
        $(".agree").click(function(){
            if($(this).prop("checked") == true){
                $('form input[type="submit"]').prop("disabled", false);
            }
            else if($(this).prop("checked") == false){
                $('form input[type="submit"]').prop("disabled", true);
            }
        });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <form>
        <label>Name: <input type="text" name="username"></label>
        <label>Email: <input type="email" name="email"></label>
        <label><input type="checkbox" class="agree"> I agree to terms and conditions.</label>
        <input type="submit" value="Submit">
    </form>
</body>
</html>
