UK E-commerce Solicitors – Website Terms and Conditions

South Bank Legal’s e-commerce solicitors advise online businesses and distance sellers on a full range of consumer law legal compliance issues.

The regulatory environment has recently changed. Formerly the Distance Selling Regulations set out the information online sellers had to supply to customers. Those regulations were replaced in 2014 by the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.

To avoid committing statutory offences, online traders must comply with the Consumer Contracts Regulations by ensuring that their online sales process clearly communicates information such as:

  • the trader’s its identity and address;
  • a description of the goods or services to be provided;
  • the price, including all taxes;
  • arrangements for payment and performance;
  • delivery costs, where appropriate;
  • the geographical address of the trader’s place of business to which a consumer may address complaints; and
  • instructions for exercising the right to cancel the contract.

Our UK website compliance lawyers can conduct a review of your online sales process and expertly prepare compliance documentation for your business such as:

  • Website terms and conditions
  • Website terms of use
  • Privacy policy
  • Cookie policy
