Is Your Website Legal?
Over the years the internet has made it easier for consumers to buy goods and services online, saving time, money and increasing accessibility with a wider variety of choice. For businesses this sees the opportunity not only to attract more potential customers but also save money from start-up costs and reducing overheads. For most businesses the importance of having an online presence is key to success.
With internet use and e-commerce becoming part of everyday lives, the growth in new websites and online sales show no signs of slowing down. With this however comes increased risk to both consumers and businesses such as the distribution of personal consumer data, bank details, online fraud and the mis-selling of goods.
Legislation has been introduced to safeguard consumers and regulate business. The following are some of the main legal requirements a website and e-commerce site must follow:
For all websites:
- Websites must contain the business name, place of registration, registered number and office address; and
For e-commerce sites:
- Website must show Terms and Conditions, Delivery and Returns policy pages to display information as part of the Consumer Protection regulations;
- If you collect and process credit and debit card information, you must conform to the appropriate security standards; and
- Conform to EU Anti-Spam Laws, ensure your email database is of opt-in email addresses, and include an opt-out instruction on all marketing emails sent.
