If you are starting you own website you may be wondering what legal notices you need to include

A legal notice is an instrument which is used on a website to convey an important message that the consumer needs to know or alternatively, it is used to state a right(s) over material on the website

So what should you include? Firstly you need a data protection notice. This will tell the consumer what you will and wont do with their data

You should combine the above data protection notice with a privacy notice. This will provide comfort to the consumer as to where their details will end up

Your website should also contain a copyright notice. This aserts your rights to the images and text contained on the website. In conjunction with this you should an Intellectual Property notice. This will state who owns (amongst other things) the trade marks contained on the website.

Legal notices are an important addition to any website and you never know just when you will need to fall back on them

Jody Tsigarides is a trainee solicitor who specialises in trade mark law, brand protection and intellectual property law.
