Internet and Online

Operating a business online may not be as straightforward as just setting up a website. If you sell goods or services online, collect personal data from customers (including payment details) or offer a blog or forum to users of your website, there are legislative requirements that you must meet.

How can Thorntons help?

Our Technology team provide legal advice to a wide range of businesses who operate online. We can help you on a range of issues regarding your internet-based business, such as domain name disputes, website terms and conditions, privacy policies, or what you can or cannot do with the data you collect from your customers.

We also have particular expertise in advising on issues surrounding social media sites, including clearance for third party rights, service availability, handling of personal data, reputational risk and notice & takedown procedures.
