Your rights and obligations don’t change online

Your rights and obligations are the same, whether you run your business online or from a brick-and-mortar store.

Some tips to make sure your business is doing the right thing:

  • Provide information that is accurate and truthful when you post online about your product, service, or business. This includes information about your prices, shipping, and delivery times.
  • Don’t ask others to write reviews that aren’t genuine and truthful. Writing fake or misleading reviews is against the law.
  • If your product or service doesn’t meet consumer rights, you need to remedy the problem. Consumers have rights, called consumer guarantees when purchasing certain products and services.

Remember, when you buy a product or service online from another business, you also have rights as a consumer. Be alert when buying online.
