You could even set up a successful online only business, perhaps running an e-commerce store and selling products online. There’s a lot of information out there when it comes to setting up and designing a website, but did you know that there are also legal requirements?

Alongside legal factors such as data protection laws, due to GPDR regulations, there are also various legal requirements covering the presentation of key information, security and accessibility standards and privacy requirements. Keeping customers safe and providing a secure browsing experience is a big responsibility for business owners.
