What Legal Documents Do I Need to Set Up My Online Business? | LegalVision


Building an online business is challenging yet rewarding. Having the right documents in place when you start is essential to your business’ success. Before launching your website, you’ll need three key legal documents. These documents should be easily accessible on your website as they will help to protect your business and build trust with your customers. The first document you need is your Business Terms and Conditions. These apply to your customers if you sell goods or services. This document ensures your customers understand what you are providing. It covers terms such as payment, refunds, repairs, delivery and disclaimers. The type of Terms and Conditions you need will differ depending on the type of business you run. An online business lawyer can help you draft one specifically for your business. For example, it should inform your visitors who owns the copyright material on your website and what they can do with your content. The third document, your privacy policy, sets out what personal information you collect; how you collect it; how you use the information and whether you will disclose it to third parties. If you collect any sort of personal data, such as email addresses, you’ll need a Privacy Policy. Having the right legal documents for your online business ensures you comply with consumer and privacy law. These legal documents also help your customers better understand what you are selling and on what terms, as well as set out how their information is being used. If you need a lawyer to draft or review legal documents for your online business, call LegalVision today.
