Legal requirements for an e-Commerce

In accordance with the legal requirements for an e-Commerce, merchant's web shop must provide the following information to their customers: 

  • Impressum (detailed merchant data).
  • Contact (e-mail, phone number, fax, address).
  • Description of the product (exact name, composition of the product, final retail price in ‘£’).
  • Terms of collection, protection and use of personal data.
  • Terms & conditions (payment, delivery, complaint, warranty etc.).

The above information is often placed in the footer of the page as a hyperlink, so it can be easily accessed at any time through the web site navigation.

Note: The information in this article is informative only. Consult your financial institution and accountant for the official information.
