Tools to Protect your e-Business from Liability
E-commerce companies are perfect for those looking to start a e-Business and have the flexibility of working from home. They do, unfortunately, come with some of their complications. Like when you are moving products through multiple states, from one side of the country to another, or if you need to account for international laws as well because you serve customers overseas as well. There’s also personal information collected when you handle customer orders, you’ll need to be careful with it as well. This may seem overwhelming, but it’s mostly covered by four simple documents that you can host on your site, and we’ll discuss those documents below.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Disclaimer
There are no federal guidelines for what an e-commerce business’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) disclaimer needs to state to protect them from any liability. They are important in making your website as accessible as it can be to as many possible customers and shielding your business from liability. While you’ll still need to take the time to do this – at least having a disclaimer shows that you are making an effort and that you are working to have those accommodations in place for those in need of them. Hopefully, there will be more federal guidelines on this in the future.
