Small Print Checklist

Why do you need this?

In view of the fact that your customers don’t meet you or enter a physical shop to inspect the goods or services they want to buy, the law gives them a right to basic information which you must provide .This is as a result of the E Commerce and Consumer Contracts Regulations. This applies whether you sell or advertise over the internet, by e-mail or SMS messages. If you do not follow the law, the Information Commissioner’s Office can come after you with an enforcement notice, a possible fine and there may be criminal sanctions too. This isn’t very good publicity for your business either!

When do you use it?

Before you send out e-mails or SMS messages and before your website goes live.
