D2E: e-Commerce

This 3-hour session is part of the Data and Digital Economy Law Series. It covers existing laws relating to electronic contracts (and transactions in general) as well as the legality of electronic signatures and records. In particular, the rights and liabilities of Internet and e-Commerce intermediaries will also be examined in the Singapore context with some comparative analysis to the US and EU position. Participants will also be taken through the end-to-end process of e-commerce transactions - from pre-purchase activities, to purchasing and payment procedures, to post-purchase activities - and the legal issues and business considerations relating to these activities at each stage of the process.
