Are there legal requirements for information on an ecommerce site, if so which ones?

Updated 8 Apr, 2020

Yes, in the Electronic Commerce Act (2002:562), the so-called e-commerce law, there are requirements for information on an e-commerce site.

On a website, the following information should be available:

• Information on the trader's name, geographical address and email address.

• Information on the corporate identity number and VAT registration number.

The information should be provided as follows:

• The above information should be direct and easy to find, and it should be available in a permanent way, so that it, for example, can be saved.

• If price is stated on the website, the price must be communicated in a clear and obvious manner. If tax and freight is added, this must be stated specifically.
