Cyber law

The internet in Israel has revolutionized the law and raises questions every day in the field of cyber law. Each of us holds a powerful location-based computer and many aspects of our lives move to the technological dimension. Alongside technological development, many legal questions arise, too, which the courts' law and rulings have not yet dealt with. 

The new technological world raises a host of questions that must be addressed in the Internet, information systems, information security and cyber law. As the late Judge Cheshin concluded: "  In substantial parts of the law – including the legal process, intellectual property law, parts of contract law, parts of tort law, privacy law and more – the courts that we will no longer risk effective use of of their application in new ways of technology   blunt are too difficult to analyze Christian sharply to new situations; narrow the difficulties are not big enough   through; shorts are coming to distant places. so the computer, so cloistered behind computers, the internet " .

In order to deal with the new questions that arise in cyber law and Internet law, we recommend consulting with an attorney in the field of Israel cyber law and Israel Internet law. 

Email advertising and SMS messages

Section 30 of the Israeli Communications Law sets out the terms and conditions required of a company or business that wishes to send an advertisement by email or advertisement by text message. The Communications Act sets out the exact conditions within which an advertisement can be sent, with general conditions being a documented request for consent from the message recipient, stating in the message itself that it is an advertisement and allowing the recipient to withdraw his consent to receive an advertisement message.

If you are setting up a client club and are interested in mailing advertisements to it, it is highly recommended that you consult an Internet lawyer or privacy protection attorney for the purpose of formulating a clear policy for sending advertisements and privacy policies to your clients, while adhering to the relevant statutory and regulatory authority regulations.

The compensation for sending an advertisement by email or advertisement in a text message, which is considered as spam, may result in compensation to the recipient of the message up to NIS thousand per message as well as a class action.

The law establishes a set of conditions that allow an advertisement to be e-mailed or advertised in an SMS message, but it is advisable to consult an Internet lawyer to follow the law and avoid spamming.

Online consumer protection

Establishing an e-commerce site requires special attention to issues that arise from consumer protection on the Internet. Even if you run a large or large chain, opening an online store or e-commerce site requires a different approach in terms of consumer rights and consumer protection for online transactions.

The Consumer Protection Law states that in a remote sale transaction, the consumer may cancel the transaction to purchase a property from the date of purchase until 14 days from the date of receipt of the property or from the date of receipt of the specified transaction details – whichever is later. In a service transaction, the purchase can be canceled within 14 days of the date of the transaction. Ongoing transaction – You can cancel whether the service is started or not, and in a non-ongoing transaction, cancellation will be done for at least two business days, other than rest days, before the date the service is supposed to be provided.

To be sure that your e-commerce site complies with the various legal provisions, especially online consumer protection, we recommend consulting with a consumer protection attorney online.
