E-commerce & Online Business
E-commerce and online retail presents very different problems for ‘business to business’ transactions than for ‘business to consumer’ transactions.
The regulations affecting websites, e-commerce and data protection are constantly changing in an attempt to keep up to date with technological developments. Businesses selling to consumers through a website or mobile app need to ensure that they comply with the Consumer Rights Act 2015 which consolidates and amends the law protecting consumers in England and Wales.
The issues which most website owners will need to consider include:
- Data protection, cookies and privacy
- Consumer rights (e.g. cancellation, descriptions, returns etc.)
- Terms and conditions for the sale of goods or supply of services
- Intellectual property rights (e.g. copyright, licensing and trademarks)
