Before we get started let’s get some background information into the topic:
With the growing trends of protecting consumer data, it appears that before long there will be rules that apply to all businesses across the globe. Stay ahead of the game and make sure your apps are GDPR and Consumer Privacy compliant.
Shopify has taken numerous steps to become fully GDPR compliant and you can read about that here https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/your-account/GDPR .
However, Shopify is not responsible for any apps that a store owner installs whether it’s downloaded from the Shopify app store or externally. It is the responsibility store owner to confirm with the app’s developers if they are GDPR compliant or not.
We’ve conducted an comparison of the features in the apps on the Shopify app marketplace in our other article Analysis and Comparison of Popup Apps, which should help you make a decision on which app will suit your needs.
We also have a Shopify Popup Application on the app store. Our app comes fully GDPR and Californian consumer privacy compliant. We have configured our app to include it’s own required cookie bar seeking data permissions from your customers. In addition, in case you already have a cookie bar installed, we have set up integrations with the Top 6 GDPR cookie bar apps on the store to work our application.
The full list is:
