Protected Shops

Online retailers must observe many legal requirements that apply especially to e-commerce. Only if you know and observe all legal requirements can you achieve legal certainty for your online shop and avoid typical pitfalls.

What needs to be observed – Top 5 checklist

  1. Price labelling

    Always indicate the final price (gross price incl. VAT and other price elements).

  2. Legal notice

    Include a complete and easy-to-find legal notice on your website with the commercial register number.

  3. Terms and conditions / privacy policy

    Explicitly point out the terms and conditions to your customers and obtain their consent. Also include a privacy policy – because every online shop collects and processes personal data.

  4. Article description / product photos

    Describe the important product features in as much detail as possible and observe the copyright and trademark restrictions when using product photos.

  5. Order button / order confirmation

    Use an order button that clearly indicates to the customer that clicking the button concludes a binding contract with obligation to pay and send an email confirmation to the customer immediately after order placement.
