Expert legal support for website operators
Let us help you to smoothly manage your website, online store, membership area or online discussion forum by securing all the legal stuff, terms and conditions, users' policies and GDPR.
Depending on the type of website that you operate, there are always short-term and long-term legal liability that may arise in the near or in the distant future. As a website operator, you might be expose to legal claims that could be avoided, provided to ensure that you have in place all the legal protections that could possible put in place from the outset.
Often, potential legal liability of website operators is obvious and apparent for any lawyer who considers a website and who understand the nature of online business that their client is carrying out. In other cases, the legal liabilities of the website operator might not be so apparent even to a lawyer unless the lawyer is an expert and very experience in providing legal support to website operators.
The most practical way for you, as an operator of a website or an internet forum in the UK, to protect your position is to know what your rights and obligations are. Yes, there is plenty of information on the internet which you can read but much of it (we are told by our clients) is either too general or too detailed for you to be sure of your true legal position.
To keep things simple but safe we invite you to call us today and to speak with one of our expert internet lawyer in a consultation dedicated to you and to your business. There are only 3 or 4 law firms in the UK which genuinely specialises in internet law and which are able to offer you a long term relationship of trust coupled with outstanding legal advice and support.
As an operator of an online forum or a review website you are likely to need to have a good understanding of your rights and obligations in relation to defamation, data protection and privacy laws. You are likely to benefit from advice on drafting the most appropriate legal documents for your website, which include privacy policies, website terms and conditions and often users’ agreements and a code of conduct for your forum.
The most common legal risks for website operators in the UK are in relation to law suits that involve breach of privacy, breach of GDPR and data protection laws, breach of trademarks, breach of contract and from other consumer law related matters.
We will, as a matter of course, advise you on trademarks for your online business and will carry out international trademark searches to ensure you are safe. We will check if you are compliant with data protection laws and particularly where your users’ data is stored and whether this is compliant with EU data protection laws. We will further advise on defamation, privacy and other legal issues which you are likely to encounter as an operator of an online forum or legal advice about a review website.
Most importantly, however, once we speak with you in a consultation and have an understanding of your business and your passions, you will establish a relationship with us which means we will always be there to help and support you on short notice.
