Website compliance

As an owner of a website you have a legal obligation to keep your website compliant with current legislation.

The  rules and regulations for websites change and your website must comply with the latest legal requirements which cover website content and website functionality.

How does the law apply to your website?

All website owners are required to provide their users with certain information and if you use cookies, or subscribe to an analytics service that does, then you may fall foul of the law if you do not get your users’ consent first.

Any business that collects personal data must comply with data protection legislation including the retained EU law version of the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) and the Data Protection Act 2018 as amended by the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (SI 2019/419).

Website compliance is an area of law that is developing rapidly and enforcement is taken seriously.

  • We can advise you on your obligations in relation to your website and how the various rules and regulations apply to your activities.
  • Implementing suitable policies can help achieve compliance and we can draft, review and advise on privacy policies, terms of use and cookie policies.
  • We can also advise on data protection and email or sms and text marketing issues.
