When did you last check your Company’s T&Cs?


By now, many of you will have received numerous emails regarding GDPR. But do you have your own set of terms and conditions in place?

We have all been recently bombarded with emails from companies confirming that they currently have your details on their mailing list, and are updating their terms and conditions to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

But, do you have your own set of terms and conditions in place? Do you know if your own terms and conditions are GDPR compliant? Can you be sure that they are up to date and adequately protect your interests whilst complying with the law?

Most companies will have a set of standard terms and conditions in place with their customers or clients. Those who do not will most certainly want to consider putting a set of standard terms and conditions in place for a number of reasons.

Firstly, if your clients are consumers (being the general public rather than other businesses), there are strict rules surrounding the supply of goods, services and digital content which you will need to comply with. You will need to set out those rules clearly to your customers.

Secondly, you will want to ensure that your liability in relation to the supply of goods, services or digital content is limited where possible.

There are many other commercial reasons for wanting a set of terms and conditions, for example, you may want to unify the ordering process, set out to your customers what their obligations will be, set out your levels of service and also to make your customers aware of your privacy policy and compliance with the new GDPR rules.

Although you may want to place the terms and conditions on your website which your customers can be deemed to accept upon their purchase from you, you may also want to consider a more bespoke set of terms and conditions which can be adapted for each client depending on which goods or services you offer.
