It is not known to all, but there are several national and European legislations regulating the communication tools of a company (including the legal mentions of websites).
As the legislation is not well known and quite complex, we wanted to to make it almost automatic for all customers to comply with it.
Once you are logged into your account, you will find a "Legal" section in the "Website settings".
All this information is then used by our systems to automatically generate the declarations necessary for the establishment of your online presence (e.g.: legal notices for websites). It is therefore very important to fill it in correctly to avoid any problem or fine during a possible control by the administration.
Mandatory legal information
In this section you must enter all the information that companies are obliged to publish on all the media used. This allows for a clear identification of the person responsible for the publication. The following information are required:
- Company name
- Legal form
- Company number/VAT number
- Address of the company's head office
We complete this section with the contact information filled out in the basic information.
Special legal information
In this section, you have the possibility to add PDF files in order to meet the additional obligations of specific regulated professions but also to allow those who wish to publish the legal documents they would like to see on their website.
Some regulated professions have an additional obligation to make available certain information or documents such as
- The professional association to which they belong
- Their professional designation
- The state in which it was issued
If you are a member of a regulated profession, we advise you to add all this information in a document that you can add directly in this section.
Other legal documents
Some companies want to make certain legal documents easily available. As a rule, we find :
- General terms and conditions of sale
However, we do not advise you to add more sensitive documents such as contracts, diplomas, etc.
