Any business engaging in e-commerce whether it be website sales, social media networks, or any other form of membership-based operation, will need to ensure that it has in place appropriate terms and conditions dealing with standard commercial issues. However, it must also ensure that it deals with issues which are specific to online operations such as Distance Selling Regulations. In addition, it must structure its website correctly so that these terms and conditions actually become part of the contract it enters into with the purchaser.
There are also other types of terms and conditions which are vital in a website context, notably privacy policies and rules governing online forums.
We can provide legal advice and contractual support around any of these issues.
