Gdpr
 
Hello all,

With GDPR there are a couple of things that I am thinking may impact ecommerce requirements:

1. A checkbox (unticked) in the checkout, for customers in the EU that they tick for them to say they give consent to privacy policy and how their data is handled, etc, under the new GPDR regulations.

Will x cart 5 be implementing such a unticked checkbox?

Thanks

And yes, it is not about a simple checkbox on the site. You need to change all your business process to make it compliant GDPR. However, our addon will help merchants to be GDPR friendly.


Hi Xim or Xcart,

If x cart will implement eg a checkbox to tick in checkout process for purposes of being part of the GDPR compliance process, will it allow us to choose to only show this for EU customers and not other customers (eg where the billing address is an EU country)?

(or maybe that should include EU shipping address too??)

Thanks,

We're assuming that the 'add-ons' mentioned, will become available at the same time 5.3.5.2 (or later) reaches Merchant wave status. Everybody can then presumably (and hopefully!) add those add-ons if they want them, or don't add them if they don't :D/ We're thinking this should be anytime soon...

Edit (4th May): The latest X-Cart "Blog" update gives more details for XC5 (and XC4). These blog updates are normally... in advance of the actual Merchant wave releases / upgrades. We can only guess that both XC 5.3.5.2 and the GDPR add-ons that are suitable for XC 5.3.5.2 are indeed imminent...

@X-Cart

From your "Sell to the EU" email dated 05/03/18...

"We’ve released the installation packages for all version of the 4.7.x branch. The packages for v4.6.x and 4.5.x will require adaptation."

We have two 4.6.6 XC stores. Care to elaborate on "will require adaptation?

____

Another comment... we are in the USA, and only allow USA customers. In admin, we only have USA setup in countries... nowhere else.

Do we need to bother with GDPR? Obviously, anyone can view our webstore from anywhere with an internet connection. Is that enough to justify us to be GDPR compliant, or are we in the clear?

Thanks in advance.

I just installed the new GDPR module, it was painless. Thanks to X-Cart for putting that out there in a timely manner.

I wish the mandatory check button at checkout didn't show for non-EU customers, however.

We're guessing it's THIS one you have installed. It's listed as being "...compatible: 5.3.4.x" but... 5.3.5.x isn't listed - yet. Looks easy enough to use on the demo / details provided, especially the admin's ability to switch off the cookie popup :-)

We're going to wait for the Merchant wave 5.3.5.x release and all of it's compatible modules before looking in detail, because this next core upgrade contains some useful (for us) bug fixes that we raised previously...

In the file area in x-cart help desk I show eu-gdpr-dev-pack-4.0.x-4.5.x.tgz and then a bunch of files for 4.7.0 - 4.7.9

What do I use for store version 4.6.x?
