We are witnessing an upsurge in the number of inspections carried out on professional websites, particularly with regard to general terms and conditions of sale.

Certain subjects come up frequently, such as the delicate topic linked to the right of withdrawal, which may or may not apply, or may be different, depending on the nature of the products sold.

In all cases, we also note that the calculation of the withdrawal period is often incorrect. The risk for the professional is to see this period extended by several months, or to be exposed to fines.

This is the reason why it is vital to regularly update your terms and conditions, legal notices, privacy policy – in short, your legal documentation – to keep it up to date with laws and regulations, as well as with the evolution of your business over time.

This can help you avoid sanctions imposed by the French Data Protection Authority or the Department of Competition, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control, for example, but also instill trust to your customers/partners, who play a major role in your reputation.
