It is true to say that information technology and business are, these days, inextricably interwoven and that it is difficult to talk meaningfully about one without talking about the other.
E-commerce has grown rapidly and many billions of pounds are spent every year on-line. As the use of internet technology has grown so has the regulation of e-commerce and the rules governing the internet, websites, on-line contracting, distance selling and data protection (to name but a few). If you intend to promote and develop your business using electronic means there are a number of legal rules and regulations which might affect the way you do business which will require consideration.
The chances are that if your business has an internet presence that some of the e-commerce rules and regulations will apply to you. In particular, if you sell goods or services on-line you will need to ensure that your contracts are enforceable and comply in all respects with the various regulations which govern the formation of contracts and the information you must make available to consumers. If you breach these regulations you will possibly incur penalties, and may damage your business.
At Morecrofts, we will guide your business through the regulatory maze whether you already trade on-line or propose to do so. Our specialist lawyers will strive to understand your commercial requirements and take a practical approach which ensures that the needs of your business are met and any risks are minimised.
