This Report aims to provide the reader with a full description of the areas of law which apply to websites. It summarises the main legislation and provides practical guidance on how to ensure your website is legally compliant.
“Most companies in the UK have a website. Many do not follow the legislation.”
You cannot afford to be one of them. Laws and regulations are being added all the time and the risk of non-compliance is growing with them. Many of the legal rules stem from the EU, from those governing distance learning to e-commerce and data protection.
Did you know, for example, that if you wanted to set up a new website, the legislation you need to comply with is strewn across at least 10 different directives or regulations?
This fully updated and expanded Report deals with all the practical legal issues that arise with websites, both those sites that sell goods or services and those which advertise. It includes new information on internet selling and the pitfalls and risks that surround that area. This expert Report will ensure that you are aware of everything you need to do to comply with the law. Be clear about your legal responsibilities, understand what your obligations are, be aware of the traps and pitfalls and avoid the costly penalties.
This expert Report will ensure that you can rest secure that you are doing everything you need to do to comply with the law:
