The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations means if you are advertising to consumers, you are not allowed to mislead anyone by including false or deceptive messages in your advertising, leave out important information or use aggressive sales techniques.
If you are advertising to businesses you will need to follow 'The Business Protection from Misleading Marketing Regulations 2008' legislation. Breaking the regulations means you could face a fine, be prosecuted or imprisoned. We can talk you through the rights and wrongs of any advertising campaign and support you if you have come up against any problems.
Do my terms of sale meet with consumer law regulations?
It is important that your website be compliant with consumer rights and unfair trading regulations. Our team can review the website and advise on any requirements to ensure it complies with consumer law.
Request for disclosure of information
If you have received a request to disclose information, we can help by advising what information you are and are not legally required to disclose.
