It's a good question... especially as the XC Module demo pics currently show an (example) order being delivered to Los Angeles, USA (...that well known NON-GDPR region ) Yet the checkbox you mention is right there on display...

It might be too do with the old chestnut of #VPN though possibly? e.g. What use is Geolocation if customers use #VPN and their IP appears to be in Fiji NOT France thus obviating the initial country verification stage of the GDPR module? Not sure if the final verification and therefore the checkbox you mentioned, is based on the selected delivery address country (in which case, it's still not fully suitable yet as the XC demo pic proves) or, if that verification is also IP based, in which case it is still appears to be potentially flawed...

Good to hear the comments.

So basically we need to show it if IP address is EU, or if shipping address is EU, or if Billing address is EU...?
