Online presence is increasingly important to retailers as a key route to market, making it important to get the terms and policies that are found on an e-commerce platform right. These documents will need to cover customers’ use of your platform/website, the terms on which they purchase your products or services as well as ensuring sufficient information is provided around their consumer and data protection rights. 

In this module we will help you understand the issues involved in putting together appropriate Terms of Use, the Consumer Rights Act’s impact on your Terms of Sale, and the thought process required to develop an appropriate Data Protection Policy/ Notice,  which will help you to manage the legal issues that arise  in e-commerce.
