GDPR – or General Data Protection Regulations – has been a hot topic for a while. I want to clarify what I can do to help that is also included for free with every one of my new care plan sign ups. GDPR for eCommerce is complex as it relates to users and orders as well as other ways user data is commonly collected on a website.
The issue itself is very complex, as it’s all about how organisations deal with data about employees, customers and so much more. I am just concerned with how it impacts your website and your website users.
For eCommerce, it’s all about
- Telling the user who you are, why you collect their data, for how long, and who receives it
- Getting a clear consent (when required) before collecting any data
- Letting users access their data, and take it with them
- Letting users delete their data
- Letting users know if data breaches occur
What can I offer?
I would like to be able to install a plugin and call it done, but unfortunately, it’s not that simple.
Here are 7 things me and my team can help you with that would be covered by your care plan (otherwise €200+Vat):
Cookie notices and GDPR
Security audit plugin
Changing forms to remove automatic opt-ins
The right to be forgotten
Where personal data is stored on your site
And here are items which aren’t included. Items in italics are where I can help:
General business compliance
Handling user data requests
Auditing third party providers
Sourcing and replacing plugins that don’t comply
