IT law, online trading and data protection

As a modern law firm in Mannheim, we advise and represent companies and private individuals who do business on the Internet. Our competences cover the entire range of IT law, among others in the areas of:



Distance selling contracts with legally secure online shop

For distance contracts, stricter requirements have to be observed than in traditional retail. In addition, current resolutions or court decisions can transform a previously legal online shop from one day to the next to trap for warning letters.


We advise you comprehensively on the legally compliant design of your web shop, e.g. in terms of:


  • Mandatory information, e.g. company details
  • Button solution
  • Cancellation by customer, cancellation policy
  • Shipping
  • Arbitration Boards

Data protection for legally secure online shops and websites

Similar to the distance selling contracts, data protection requires extensive measures to ensure the careful handling of information provided by your website visitors and their consent to various privacy-related, technical settings of the website or the online shop itself. The sensitive data protection framework does not exclusively include contractual areas, but notably technical devices for controlling or networking for social communication.

To ensure compliance with data protection, we support you with:


  • Data protection declarations
  • Double-opt-in procedure
  • Consent of users / customers
  • Cookies
  • Analysis Tools
  • Tracking tools - user behavior
  • Social Plugins
  • Scoring

Privacy in general

What your visitors or customers actively consent to is one side of the data protection, the other side concerns the subsequent handling of the data to be stored or transferred to third parties for processing purposes. This treatment is strictly regulated by law and it is one of the competence and consulting priorities of our legal experts.

We are here for you regarding:


  • General Data Protection Regulation DSGVO (VO 2016/679)
  • Federal Data Protection Act BDSG

Domain law - secure your place on the Internet

Internet is changing fast - technically and legally. In order to ensure your security and that of your visitors comprehensively, it is advisable to involve an experienced legal adviser for the domain law and the contents of your Internet presence as early as possible.


Why is domain law important?

A strong partner protects your domain against infringements by third parties and preserves the legally compliant handling of the registration to the sale.
