Distance selling can be far more cost-effective than selling face to face. If your business sells to individual consumers without meeting them face to face, you must comply with the Consumer Contracts (formerly Distance Selling) Regulations. Telephone marketing, email marketing and mail order catalogues are all options. For many businesses, distance selling means selling online.
If you use CCTV for workplace monitoring, there are strict rules on what and how you can video staff, customers and others on your premises.
You must also comply with the Human Rights Act and Data Protection Act when using and storing any information you gather.
