Ensured compliance with Russian legislation when publishing information on our client’s websites

The team of our practice advised a client who had decided to leave the Russian market; in this connection, the client had to create separate websites in the Russian domain zone for five brands of the company. The new sites were designed with various functionality which included, for instance, the collection of personal data, interaction with consumers (the return/exchange of goods, the possibility to order a free sample), and information about the assortment.

Our lawyers ensured complex legal support for the creation of the new websites: they analysed the planned functionality for each website; assessed the risks connected with the publication of information and chose the most efficient ways to handle each type of risk; drew up a tailored package of documents to be published on each website in line with the requirements of civil legislation, legislation on advertising, personal data and the protection of consumers’ rights; devised cookie banners and disclaimers.

When preparing the documents, our experts relied on the requirements of Russian legislation, the current approaches of supervisory authorities, their own user experience, and on the best practices in producing user-friendly documents. To do so, our experts applied legal design instruments while preparing the documents. This resulted in easy-to-understand documents which fully complied with Russian legislation as well as with the objectives set by the client.
