Online Business & E-Commerce Law

Do you have a website or an online presence?  If you do, you are considered to be doing business in some regard, and are required to have a Privacy Policy and Terms of Service in place.

Every individual and every company requires different considerations when it comes to internet law, and what needs to be put into one’s privacy policy and terms of use.  Differences lie in content on the web, collection of data, users, subscribers, etc.  Simply, one size does not fit all when it comes to privacy policies and terms of use and service.  Each must be particular to you and your website.

Whether you’re doing business in Grand Haven, Muskegon, Grand Rapids, Michigan, the Mid-West, Country Wide, or World Wide, Attorney Cara Galbavi can help you build the internet law documents that you need based on your specific situation, including:

  • Collection and Storage of Information: Useful metrics from data about your website users and visitors can help you build a better business. Make sure you have the proper terms in place for both anonymous and personally identifiable information collection and storage that are specific to your situation.
  • User generated content: If you allow users to create or upload content on your website, ensure that you are not liable for that content and have provisions in place for removing defamatory, or other unsuitable content.
  • Limitation of Liability: Limit your liability for interruption to business, loss and damages, etc. from the use of your site and third party plugins, links, etc.
  • Copyright infringement: Protect yourself and your users from copyright infringement while also sheltering your site from claims of infringement by user generated content.
  • Data Storage and Protection:  Know and explain your specific storage and security responsibilities.
  • Jurisdiction: Avoid the potential for lawsuits in multiple locations around the United States. Select advantageous jurisdictions and favorable arbitration venues.
