Basic Law for Web Designers No 2: Website Terms and Conditions


This is the second article in my series on basic law for web designers. This article focuses on the terms and conditions that should appear on the website itself.

Every website should have at least two sets of terms, namely:

- website access terms; and

- a privacy statement.

If a customer intends to market his or her goods or services through the website it should also set out the terms and conditions upon which the goods and services are offered to the public.

The terms and conditions and indeed the website itself should comply with the Distance Selling, E-Commerce and Provision of Services Regulations.

The article links to my earlier articles on website terms and conditions, e-commerce and data protection which link to resources on the Business Link and OFT websites and other materials.

Anyone who wishes to discuss this article or the topics discussed in it may call me on 0800 862 0055.
