Setting up and checking general conditions of business

It has become extremely difficult for online vendors to offer their products and services on the Internet in such a way that all legal aspects are covered. For that reason; please do not use standard conditions of business, nor should you simply copy somebody else’s general conditions of business! These might be quite simply ineffective, or their unauthorised use may make you subject to legal claims for breaches of competition or copyright clauses. There is a sheer endless number of laws, regulations and legal precedent that must be followed in online trading - and these are constantly changing. For somebody operating an online shop without expert assistance it is almost impossible to operate an online shop in accordance with all the legal restrictions. Legal claims based on incorrect pricing designations, errors in the rules regarding cancellation of sales, incorrect information in the general company information, etc. are therefore unfortunately an everyday occurrence. Online merchants are therefore strongly advised to regularly have their shops checked in terms of conformity with legal requirements.
