Freshleaf swot up on eCommerce law
Always keen to keep up with the very latest on everything web related, last week we sent Richard to an eCommerce Legal Workshop, where he rubbed shoulders with representatives from Yahoo!
Perhaps surprisingly, we were the only web development company represented at the workshop, which whilst it was primarily run by lawyers for other lawyers, yielded a wealth of useful information about the dos and don’ts of online trading and data capture.
As well as having the chance to do some high-powered networking, Richard made copious notes on everything from best practice relating to privacy policies when taking user information, to opt ins and refund policies and the law relating to distance selling. While we’d probably have been heading in the right direction with most of these things just by using common sense and best practice, we now have our very own expert who is fully briefed on the latest information.
