It is imperative to provide some ‘business terms and conditions’ for customers of your services, or purchasers of your goods. The ‘terms and conditions’ should be added to your website so that customers can see them clearly before they make a purchase, and they will protect you to the fullest extent possible under the law, including the Australian Consumer Law.
Lastly, many people think if they have registered their business name, company name, or even a domain name they have adequate protection to use it, but they don’t; a competitor could come along and use that name. The best way of protecting your brand or logo is to ensure your trademark is registered with IP Australia.
Whilst these 4 legal steps are important steps towards complying with the law and protecting your business as much as possible, don’t just copy and paste someone else’s work or you run the risk of not adequately protecting yourself and even breaching the law. Instead, look for affordable, local legal solutions for SMEs.
