Legal Compliance Issues for a Website?

There are strict internet laws in all jurisdictions. Most of your web- activities which are legal in your country may be illegal and punishable in other countries. Considering the global reach of internet, you are exposed to the global internet jurisprudence by having a website and activities there in.

These are mainly three potential legal liabilities to be checked and avoided.

1. Web Content

Web Content carries what you intend to convey to the whole world. But it is found in recent studies that 73% of the website contents are in non-compliance of laws. Many of such web-site owners are dragged into litigations and huge liabilities for their lack of knowledge on the illegibility of their Web Content.

2. Website Legal Documents

It is essential to have website legal documents posted in your website, either for the visitors, users of your online services, those who share information with you, or obviously for the whole world. The law prescribes many mandatory legal documents. It is essential to have Terms of Use/User Agreement, Privacy Policy, Disclaimer etc in your website. Certain web activities need to have statutory disclosure documents in the website. If you have just posted a legal document copied from another website or deduced from a template will not save you from any legal impediments.

3. Website activities

There shall be many incidental activities related to your website. It may be e-commerce, posting of information, blogs, search facilities, downloads, financial transactions, chat, customer interaction, online sales, auctions, service offers, advertisements, social networking, freelance workplace, server services, professional services, professional solicitation, lotteries, gaming, hyper linking, framing, etc..There are many strict laws to cover each activity. Thus it is essential to know the legality and implications of yours/your users online activities through your website.

Thus in short,

The content in your website may break many laws including Privacy, Intellectual Property, Consumer etc. You are supposed to have certain essential documents in your website such as Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, IP Policy, Disclaimer, IT Policy, User Agreement etc If you already have such legal documents, it is essential to check the sustainability and strength of those documents.
