Ecommerce Contract Drafting and Negotiations

Digital Marketing Compliance and FTC Defense

eCommerce businesses have many complex laws to comply with, but the number one agency you want to avoid is the FTC. This government watchdog monitors for unfair and deceptive marketing tactics; a lawsuit from the FTC can tank your business faster than you can say “ROAS.”

We help you remain compliant with all advertising and digital privacy laws, so you don’t have to worry about legal pitfalls that could devastate your eCommerce business.

These are just a few of the laws affecting eCommerce businesses that you need to be aware of:

  • Restore Online Shoppers Confidence Act (ROSCA)
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
  • Section 5 of the FTC Act
  • CAN-SPAM Act
  • Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
  • Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)
  • California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)
  • The Lanham Act (Trademark Act of 1946)
  • Dot-com Disclosures

Affiliate Marketing and Influencer Law

As an eCommerce entrepreneur, you will likely need to work with affiliate marketers and social media influencers to sell products. Our eCommerce attorneys have more than 10 years of experience advising both sides of these business relationships, so we can ensure your affiliate marketing contracts are clear, enforceable, and suited to your individual needs.

We can provide protection against underperformance and help you resolve any disputes favorably, with minimal disruption to your business.

Plus, did you know that you can be sued by the FTC based on the actions of the affiliates marketing your products? We’ll help you craft safeguard policies that can protect you from the FTC.

“Super responsive, knowledgeable, and an overall pleasure to work with.”

Terms Of Service And Privacy Policy

The terms of service and privacy policy for your eCommerce website can offer protection in the unfortunate event of legal disputes. As digital privacy becomes increasingly important (and increasingly regulated), neglecting these documents could leave you vulnerable to lawsuits.

Although cookie usage is typically included in your privacy policy, eCommerce businesses may wish to create a more comprehensive cookie policy for extra protection. Our experienced online business lawyers can help with all of these essential legal documents!
