Tools to Protect your New E-Commerce Business from Liability
Are you looking to start up a new e-commerce business? They are a perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to work from home. These types of businesses, like every other kind, come with their own unique set of complications. Like moving products through multiple starts or internationally– then it’s not just the United States laws you need to worry about but international ones. All of these issues are important from the way you handle personal information to how you pack the boxes. It may seem overwhelming– but here are some ways you can help to save yourself from liability and the damage it can do to your e-commerce business.
The ADA Disclaimer
The ADA or Americans with Disabilities Act disclaimer, unfortunately, doesn’t come with any federal guidelines on what it should say to protect an e-commerce business owner from liability. That being said, they are extremely important in making your website accessible to all and keeping your company safe from liability. While you will still need to take the time to make your website accessible, at least having a disclaimer shows a good faith effort. Showing that you are at least working to have those accommodations in place for those in need. We’re hopeful that there will eventually be more federal guidelines as e-commerce becomes more common and popular.
