Outsourcing your project to a web and IT specialist who is based abroad is a dangerous move as they are unlikely to know the UK business legislation. In the past, we have had various cases of website issues. For example, clients had asked us to make some changes to their website but they did not own the site. According to UK legislation, a website’s coding belongs to the developer while the design belongs to the designer. Due to this, some companies tend to abuse that and many people end up investing resources in something that is not actually theirs. Go Live UK is completely against that and we take action to prevent our clients from investing significant resources into a website that is not actually theirs and protect them from legal issues due to insecure payments through their sites.
Website Ownership Certificates
Go Live UK is the only web solutions provider in the UK that provides Website Ownership Certificates to clients. Providing these certificates ensures that all formal documents are signed in your name, making you the sole owner of your site. In addition to having full ownership, all the necessary data is released to you so that you can access and maintain your website. This is extremely popular with clients as they enjoy the freedom these documents give them.
Job Completion Pack
When we complete each project, our team prepare a Job Completion Pack which includes all the important details of the website and web system. This covers everything from administrator accounts to database details and many much more information. The information in the Job Completion Pack gives you everything you need to be able to completely manage your website. This is handed over at the same time as the Website Ownership Certificate (see above).
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has to be complied with by all organisations which handle cardholder information for major debit, credit, pre-paid, e-purse, ATM and POS cards.
The standard is defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council and it was created to increase controls around cardholder data in an attempt to reduce credit card fraud. Validation of compliance is carried out annually either by an external Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) or by Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQ). Companies handling large volumes of transactions are monitored by externally by a QSA while organisations handling smaller volumes have to fill out an SAQ.
The Go Live UK team will help you complete the questionnaire to ensure your web business is following the correct standards.
