Re: Gdpr - upcoming law for European merchants
 
Geolocation module for XC5 uses MaxMind GeoLite database - as mentioned in the module description. It uses static file supplied with the module which means - it can be inaccurate in many cases.
For this module to show accurate results the GeoLite database must be downloaded on a regular bases however this may require subscription with MaxMind.

The XC4 module uses geoip PHP extension.

Completely different approach for the GDPR module. In XC4 I believe ITVV is correct that in XC4 if you are not coming from EU the checkbox will not show - the code is tied to the geoip and turns off the module in this case. With module off nothing from it will work.

I am not sure if this is the case with XC5 version of the module.

@PhilJ posted THIS which tells you a little 'more' about GDPR :wink:
Don't bring me into it, was just an observation.

I voted to stay in the EU btw.

We have one GDPR module installed in one of our Dev Stores for reference, but we don't have any GeoIP modules installed anywhere as stated previously. That's why somebody who does have both modules installed, needs to answer the previous question about that possible issue

It's not just 2% VPN usage in our case, but all XC5 stores are different / offer different things, so what works for one XC5 store owner may not be suitable for others, as their respective customers may also be different :wink:

Hello,

I have reuploaded the modules.
The fixed bug affects all the stores located in the root and having clean URLs enabled.

A patch has been attached.

Thank you.

See our previous post in answer to this but...meantime...interesting :wink: We were further investigating the GDPR module that we have in our dev store (latest release 5.3.0.6) However... when utilised with Crisp White Skin (latest release 5.3.5.5 and with lots of our own mods too) it doesn't seem to function correctly. The cookie pop-up basic on/off switch within the module settings has no effect at all. The cookie pop-up is permanently switched on.

Fortunately, as we have created all our own CWS mods within a custom module, we can switch that off and test again, just to see if it was the cause of this failure, but it isn't. It's exactly the same result with or without our own custom module enabled. Anyone else who is currently using this XC5 GDPR module release noticed this?

if you are not using GeoIP modules how do you see the GDPR module working? Perhaps always on :o :o :o

As we stated previously, there are many ways to skin a cat. The XC GDPR module is NOT the only way to satisfy the requirements of GDPR when using XC5. It is relatively easy to install, it is a free and lots of work has already been done on it in order to satisfy those requirements, which means, that most store owners will probably therefore, use it. Is it the best way? In our opinion no :wink: which is why it's in our dev store.

If you must use Module A just to make Module B work, that's a clear example of why Module A is far from ideal and could be better prepared surely? :mrgreen:

GeoIP is PHP module. There is nothing wrong with using what's out there already coded for the framework/language XC is built on. It is actually something you better do - why reinvent the wheel in this. case. But the GeoIP applies to XC4 only.
XC5 uses the GeoLocation module which is another XC5 module based on data provided by MaxMind. So in this case the Module A/B remark can be used.

Car Battery (Module A) must be used to make Motor Car Engine (Module B) work :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Your analogy is Right Tent / Wrong Desert. Hmmmm It's an Electric Car (Self Sufficient aka Module A only) It's not a "...Windows XP Powered Hybrid Transportation Device" (Heavily over-hyped marketing for an inefficient product aka Module A + Module B and occasionally + Module C to fix it :wink: )
