GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation is a set of EU privacy laws that aim at protecting EU citizens’ personal data.
It’s scheduled to come into effect on 25th May 2018.
Here’s how StoreApps is working towards becoming GDPR compliant
We at StoreApps respect GDPR and are working towards making our business GDPR compliant by May.
We are reviewing and updating our internal data processes, systems as well as our plugins to make sure we are ready by May.
Soon we will be releasing our new Data Processing Agreement to allow customers to lawfully transfer EU personal data to StoreApps before 25th May.
How to make your WooCommerce store GDPR compliant
Just like us, I know you are striving to make your WooCommerce website GDPR compliant too.
The best way to achieve this is to first read up and do your research. You need to understand that every Woocommerce site uses a different set of plugins, has a different flow for shipping etc.., so there is no checklist which fits all.
You’ll need to know what you need to do for your specific site and then go ahead and implement it before 25th May 2018. So buck up!
Disclaimer: This is not legal advice. It’s our understanding of GDPR and information on how we will implement it on StoreApps.
