Shop operators ensure that their customers are informed about vendor, payment and shipping conditions, data privacy and right of withdrawal, to mention only a few keywords of the legal online shop. The texts for customer information have to be carefully prepared and regularly updated to avoid legal pitfalls and consequential warnings.
Shop operators should seek support for providing accurate contents of imprint, General Terms and Conditions, data privacy, shipping and costs, right of withdrawal and such like. In Germany and several other countries, for example, Trusted Shops offers corresponding know-how and certifies online shops. The awarded seal of approval attests to the shops the compliance with standards such as professionalism, data privacy and security of supply.
