E-Commerce Consumer Site Launched by ABA
If you’re starting an e-commerce enterprise or online sales site and need a legal perspective, SafeSelling.org is a great place to start. SafeSelling.org is a free online legal resource for individuals and small businesses interested in starting e-commerce enterprises or venturing into online sales. Developed by the ABA Section of Business Law’s Cyberspace Law Committee, this site is organized around frequently asked questions that arise during the creation, launch and operation of an online store or other e-commerce venture.
“We wanted the site to be intuitive for the typical small business owner,” said Jonathan Rubens, editorial director of SafeSelling.org. “From obtaining a domain name to protecting customer privacy, our SafeSelling.org site offers a complete range of logically listed mini-topics to help our target audience find the facts they need.”
Other topics found on the site include payment processing, delivery and fulfillment, selling out-of-state or internationally, advertising and marketing, and customer authentication and security.
SafeSelling.org is a companion site to the recently updated Safeshopping.org — another Cyberspace Law creation which provides information about purchasing items safely on the Web. In addition, the committee offers an interactive guide and commentary to privacy, security and consumer law issues.
