As more and more customers make their buying decisions online, getting your website right can be key to the success of your business.
Whether you use your website to sell your goods or services or not, it provides a vital source of information about you and your brand.
Website optimisation and understanding how others find your website is really important, but are you aware that the tools you use may have legal implications?
There are many rules and regulations that apply in this area and if you have a website you need to make sure your business complies with them.
Any business that collects personal data must comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 and if that personal information is then used for marketing purposes then the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 may apply.
Website compliance is an area of law that is developing rapidly and enforcement is taken seriously.
Our commercial lawyers frequently advise clients on these issues and can advise on the latest guidance in a particular area.
Policies are only useful if they reflect what you actually do and we can take your instructions and provide you with bespoke documents to meet your needs.
