There is a global trend indicating that businesses are increasingly being moved or set up online.
When setting up or operating your business online, there are a number of legal considerations to bear in mind. For example:
1. Have I obtained the registered business name for my business to be able to trade legally under that particular name?
2. Has my business set out the relevant terms and conditions that apply to the sale of any goods and services via my website (such as payment terms, refunds, returns and any relevant warranties, liabilities and indemnities)?
4. If my business is collecting personal information from my consumers, do I have a data breach policy in place that sets out how my business would respond should there be a cyber-attack or other leak of personal information?
5. Have I set out the relevant disclaimers / waivers relating to any goods, services, or general education and information available on my website to ensure that my business is legally protected?
6. Have I taken steps to register my trade marks and put copyright notices on any webpages containing original content that my business has developed and published?
It is important to make sure that you are running your business legally and have set up yourself with best practice protections before taking and operating your business online.
