Hi all,

Just launched our new websites yesterday. We have split our Weddings from all other work.

perfilms.co.uk
perproductions.co.uk

We wanted the same basic design for both sites, with changes in colour etc to make them look different.

Anyway, just wanted some feedback...

Thanks

Paul

Wasn't somebody saying recently that to comply with EU trading law you now need to have a trading address on your web pages?

You might not have heard of it, but that's not a viable defence... it's the law. And to back up what Gary says, it seems your websites are both in breach. I think that I read somewhere that it may also be law that phone numbers should be land lines, not mobiles too.

"Companies in the UK must include certain regulatory information on their websites and in their email footers before 1st January 2007 or they will breach the Companies Act and risk a fine."

The name, geographic address and email address of the service provider. The name of the organisation with which the customer is contracting must be given. This might differ from the trading name. Any such difference should be explained – e.g. "XYZ.com is the trading name of XYZ Enterprises Limited."

It is not sufficient to include a 'contact us' form without also providing an email address and geographic address somewhere easily accessible on the site. A PO Box is unlikely to suffice as a geographic address; but a registered office address would. If the business is a company, the registered office address must be included.

If a company, the company's registration number should be given and, under the Companies Act, the place of registration should be stated (e.g. "XYZ Enterprises Limited is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 1234567")

If the business is a member of a trade or professional association, membership details, including any registration number, should be provided.

If the business has a VAT number, it should be stated – even if the website is not being used for e-commerce transactions.

This has been summarised from the 30-page DTI document and from the UK Government guidelines on websites.
