Our Services

Drafting and Reviewing Online Business Documents

We can draft and review all types of documents needed to set up and run an e-commerce or online business, including Website Privacy Policy, Website Terms of Use, Website User Agreements and Business Terms and Conditions.

Advising on Online Privacy and Data Regulations

If you run a business that stores or transmits personal information overseas, you may be required to adhere to data protection regulations in different jurisdictions. Our team can advise you on whether the NZ Privacy Act also applies to your business.

Resolving Disputes

From time to time, disputes may arise from running an online business. For example, a breach of intellectual property (such as misuse of a trade mark), consumer rights (faulty goods) or issues with electronic payments.
