GDPR Consumer Privacy Compliant Popup Shopify

July 16, 2019

Before we get started let’s get some background information into the topic:

  • GDPR is the EU general data protection regulation, which regulates how data on European citizens can be stored and used. It applies to any online system that collects information on a European citizen regardless of the origin of the system, whether a different country or a different continent.
  • GDPR was implemented on May 25th, 2018
  • California has passed a bill to implement the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 which is to be implemented on January 1st, 2020
  • New York is currently drafting up it’s own Data Privacy Act as of June 2019
  • Between the EU, California, and New York that is more than 565 million potential online customers

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.
