Your high street rights apply online
Your high street rights apply equally when buying over the internet as when shopping on the high street. So remember, goods must be of satisfactory quality and adverts and descriptions must not be misleading. BUT with auctions and private sales the general rule is "buyer beware".
Remember always look for a closed padlock sign at the bottom of the screen
when shopping online. It shows that your details are protected when being sent.
