Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Midlands-based Evesham Micro has become one of the first PC suppliers to join the Which? Web Trader scheme. The scheme was launched earlier this week and lays down a comprehensive set of conditions for Web trading, including pricing, payment, security, advertising, contracts, refunds, guarantees and complaints handling. The Web Trader Scheme also gives Which? subscribers access to free legal advice if there is a dispute with an e-trader. By displaying the Which? Web Trader logo, Evesham Micro has pledged to abide by the Which? code of practice and to adhere to a strict set of conditions designed to protect consumers shopping on the Web. Richard Austin, MD of Evesham Micro said: "We have been in the PC business for 16 years and during that time, we have seen a lot of changes. "Consumer confidence is important, particularly for the PC industry and Evesham met the requirements of the scheme before it was even proposed. "The added value of the Web Traders logo can only enhance consumer confidence and should encourage more people into Net shopping," he said. Sheila McKechnie, director of the Consumers Association, publishers of consumer magazine Which?, added that the Which? Web Trader scheme had been launched to give online shoppers the same level of confidence as they enjoyed on the high street. "When consumers see the Which? Web Trader logo, they know they can shop with confidence," she said. ®
