Credit Report Errors

A report by the Federal Trade Commission found that 26% of consumers who checked their credit report found potentially material errors.

If you find errors, and need help, Hartsock Law stands ready and able to fight for your rights -- contact us today! 

Website and E-Commerce Compliance

Websites and E-Commerce are a unique combination of multiple laws including copyright, privacy, advertising and contract law.

Free Legal Advice:

Did you know that if you collect a website user's information, such as a name, email or phone number, you are legally required to have a posted Privacy Policy? 

Secondly, do not download another company's privacy policy and think it will apply to your company - it may not and could leave you vulnerable to a lawsuit.  Privacy Policies and Terms and Conditions are documents meant to help you! They protect you by setting forth your specific language to protect your company. The privacy policy you stole was drafted to protect that company, not yours. These agreements set forth parameters and as such need to be specially drafted for your company by an attorney. Do you have Amazon's lawsuit settlement budget? Then, why do you think Amazon's policies would work for your business?

Just as you use marketing professionals to perform a marketing performance audit, you should have the Law Office of Monica Hartsock perform a legal audit to ensure your website doesn't backfire. Websites are meant to attract customers, not FTC investigators and civil claims.
