E-commerce and Online Trading Agreements & Compliance


E-commerce has grown exponentially in recent years and is now the primary channel through which many businesses drive sales.

The number of people and businesses shopping online is increasing all the time, creating more opportunities for web-based traders to establish themselves and develop in the marketplace. However, trading remotely online does give rise to various regulatory pitfalls which are not associated with traditional bricks and mortar businesses.

There are a range of legal considerations that need to be addressed before going live, including electronic marketing, online trading, distance selling and data protection regulations.
