Online Shops

Online shops are becoming increasingly popular – with both buyers and sellers. Shopping at different times as well as the variety of goods attracted buyers, and the logistical and organisational advantages over offline trading mean great profits for companies.

Especially in online trading, however, some legal requirements have to be considered. In addition to the legally drafting of general terms and conditions, withdrawal instruction and other contractual components, there are a number of privacy and data security aspects that must be considered. Privacy policy, encryption and cookies are only the best-known “tripping hazards” when creating an online shop. Different requirements must be met when integrating payment methods, operating user accounts, using supposedly secure plug-ins and storing bank data.

MORGENSTERN advises operators of online shops, in particular, in the area of IT security and the processing of personal data in compliance with privacy provisions.
