    cambridge dictionaryŽdefines Etiquette thus:
    etiquette
    noun /ˈet.ɪ.ket//ˈet ̬.ɪ.kət/ [U]

    Definition
    the set of rules or customs which control accepted behaviour in particular social groups or social situations


    It is a bit confusing for me since etiquette overlaps with custom!
