Once your business has been appropriately licensed in the UAE and you are ready to go online, you will need three key documents which will set out the terms and conditions of your relationship with your customers. These documents are known as (i) business terms and conditions, (ii) website terms of use and (iii) privacy policy.
  3. Terms and conditions of an online business become applicable to each customer.  These are the terms on which you sell your products or services to customers on your website. It is advisable that these terms and conditions are drafted in compliance with the consumer laws of the UAE and provide you the maximum protection available under the law.
  4. The terms and use of your website are applicable to each visitor on your website even when that visitor does not purchase your goods or products.

These terms also provide necessary protection to your intellectual property in addition to setting out the terms of conduct which each visitor is required to comply with.
