Abstract

In order for a small to medium enterprise (SME) to conduct business electronically, that SME requires the establishment of a website. This requires agreements relating to (1) website development, (2) website hosting (3), Internet access, and (4) online content and advertising. The chapter will provide a practical guide from a UK law perspective for a SME in relation to the issues which should be considered when contracts for the above mentioned services are negotiated. The chapter does not cover the issues relating to how the SME should set up its arrangements with its own customers (for example, through website terms and conditions) nor does it consider e-commerce legislation required when conducting business on the Internet.
