Contract, Terms and Agreements
Whether it’s a complex contract, a set of terms and conditions or an agreement its most likely your focus will be on the document. That’s like focusing on the pudding when eating the starter. You will miss something out. With The LH Group we put everything in order for you, audit where you are and provide the input/roadmap/plan for the results you want, this will include the legal areas but our work will be focused on the results you are aiming for not just the documentation you have decided needs to be in place. The idea with all contracts is they get signed, not create a hurdle where the other party needs to employ lawyers as they are faced with a 20 page document they don’t understand. We create clear contracts that win you business.
I am an online business does eCommerce law apply to me?
This area of law governs anything and everything to do with selling goods online or using electronic methods to conduct business (this includes email marketing and other forms of online marketing) – and some would argue it is wide enough to include any type of website. So, whether you have a sales site or not its going to affect your business in some way. This might be website terms and conditions, the relationship between the user and the website owner, the way prices should be displayed on a website, whether there is any obligation on a service provider to monitor content, or commercial communication such as email marketing. Add in GDPR into the mix, outside EU suppliers and you can see the issues micro and small business are wrestling with. That’s what we make clear for you and ensure you what is needed in place without hassle.
Don’t we already have enough law on sales and marketing? Do we need eCommerce law as well?
Being relatively ‘new,’ the internet is still something of an unruly beast and eCommerce law is designed to define the interactions that take place through it, whether via a website or other electronic communication. eCommerce law can be used to protect consumers from unscrupulous traders and consequently will also protect businesses from those who seek to get something for nothing. Consumers are increasingly well informed and we save our clients the embarrassment of being asked technical questions from their customers that, without our help, they would not be able to answer and run the risk of losing interest from that customer.
What kind of areas does eCommerce law cover?
Online privacy, copyright, the legal requirements for an eCommerce website, email marketing and how to avoid breaking eCommerce law in the UK/EU and elsewhere you sell online to are just a few areas.
Why is eCommerce law relevant to IT and creatives?
Many – even most – businesses within the IT and creative sectors tend to have an online presence and a large number also sell services through those websites. Many businesses also use email marketing and will have to deal with customer data, as well as issues of copyright that may arise through working with contractors or using images. We regard IT and creative businesses as a special category due to the unique nature of their businesses.
