We advised a substantial company on the legal requirements for the operation of an online shop.

Working closely with the client’s sales and marketing personnel, we put together website terms of sale, terms of use of the website, and a privacy policy. This involved careful analysis of the client’s obligations under the Distance Selling Regulations, the E-Commerce Regulations, and data protection and privacy law.

Although it was clearly important that the online shop be fully legally compliant, it was also critical for it to be user-friendly, easy to navigate, and free of the clutter of pages of small print. We worked closely with the client to ensure the website made best use of hyperlinks and tabs.
