    "List" of UK Website Guidelines/rules?


    Hiya,

    Im looking for a "list" of rules that UK business websites must abide by. For example, aparently any site that provides a service must provide a link to a page for the user to cancel that service. There is also some stuff about making a some contact details available, but i dont know what?

    So, basically, im looking for a list of things that need to be done to ensure a business website is "legal" as it were.

    I know its a bit of a "wide" question, but i hope you understand what im after.

    Many Thanks

    Jason

    I don't understand how a web hosting company can not know it legal obligations. Its bad business to operate in any environment where you don't understand the rules of the game. Wow.

    If your trying to run a business thats a sure way to go under. And maybe include some handcuffs with it.

    flw, theres a difference between webhosting for other people and actually running a site yourself - where you are offering a service, not a physical product.

    Its the "running a site" list im looking for

    Cheers

    Sorry for being dense but are you interested in a requirements of offering a hosting service for others, host of your own site, or starting your own ISP?

    I would try emailing the Reg about it...they're cool British chaps and would prolly point you in the right direction.

    hosting my own site, but its not about the hosting, it about the website itself.

    Big_K found some stuff and put it on IRC last night, also came across www.ukonlineforbusiness.gov.uk

    I can post up Big_K's links later, they are bookmarked on my other machine.
