General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an update to regulations for the processing of data and private information online. This will apply to online stores based in the European Union or those that do extensive business in Europe. GDPR places the responsibility on businesses to give individuals more control over their personal data. If your online store violates the regulations, you could face fines.

GDPR applies to you if your online store is based in the European Union or your store targets shoppers in the European Union. To be more certain if GDPR applies to your business, contact a legal professional.
