‘Doing Business Online’ Workshop – 4th October 2017

Ingenuity KnowledgeXchange Workshop


A free legal briefing for Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire SMEs.

Business is increasing being done online. A web presence is now considered essential for most businesses, whether this is a simple website or a full e-commerce operation. When doing business on the web, a number of important legal issues must be considered. This session seeks to provide an introduction to those issues to enable businesses to advertise, trade and interact with customers online with confidence.

We’ll be looking at:

  • Getting the policies right – the underlying T’s & C’s and privacy policies that all businesses that operate online must have in place.
  • Selling online – the rules that apply in both B2B and B2C contexts.
  • Managing risk – if your web presence includes the ability for third parties to comment, post reviews or otherwise interact, it’s essential that you manage your risk of liability.
