Understand the Local Legal Issues

Legal issues may become important when customers start accessing your site from abroad. If your site sells products, foreign trade laws and customs might apply. These can affect what you can sell, what you can send, when it is sent, and how long it will take to get there. Tax laws change from country to country as well, and when products are sold overseas, international sales tax may also apply.

Your site may also need to support different privacy laws and offer more ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT (H4) tools to manage customer profiles. For example, the privacy laws in the European Union are more comprehensive than the ones in the United States, stating that individuals must be able to access and manage all information stored about them where reasonable. Privacy issues are discussed in depth in FAIR INFORMATION PRACTICES (E3) and PRIVACY POLICY (E4).
