Quote from: Inscrutable on January 10, 2008, 07:38:20 amI know Cyber-Angel had a similar topic in December last year that she voluntarily locked. I just wanted to clarify a couple of points (would have done in the other one before it was locked but didn't see it until today).Firstly (and this is me being very anal) C-A asked about type of company as defined under the Companies Act 1985 and amended in the Companies Act 2006. Technically the 2006 act didn't amend, it replaced as it was a full redraft of primary legislation (although one could argue that at the time of the formation of the company, the 1985 Act was in force).Secondly, I just wanted to clarify Harvey's point about being no requirement to post such information. Actually this is entirely dependent on what sort of Business Association Planeside is. If they are a registered company as defined under the Act there is a requirement (as of 1 January 2007) to list on the website the following details: - The comany's registered name - The company's registered number - The company's registered address (as registered with Companies House)Of course, the Planetside may not be registered as such a company (General Partnerships, Limited Partnerships, etc fall under different legislation and therefore have different requirements).Thirdly, I wanted to say that as a member of the public (and potentially a customer - I'm not sure whether or not C-A has bought the software but it matters little in any case) C-A has EVERY right to ask for that information and those people who shot her down were simply wrong to do so.(Personally, I'm not that interested in what sort of company Planetside is, but I absolutely defend C-A's right of enquiry!)I should explain in signing off that I have a proffessional involvement in the implementation of Company Law in the UK, but the comments above should be treated as my PERSONAL views.Once again, sorry for bringing this back up but I thought that it was important to get this off my chest.Inscrutable

Quote from: Inscrutable on January 10, 2008, 09:16:45 amLol - there was meant to be no assumption - I actually meant to type "(s)he" which is my usual approach to such things! I just forgot to go back and add the brackets. Really sorry if it caused offence...Inscrutable
