Configure Magento 2 GDPR Extension

How to Configure GDPR Compliance Extension in Magento 2 Store?

The internet has changed dramatically over the last decade.

Today, we send emails, pay bills, share documents, and buy goods online without giving it a second thought.

But have you ever wondered how much of your personal information you’ve shared online?

And more importantly, what happens to that information?

Brands & businesses that collect your information like bank details, addresses, IP addresses, etc. always tell you that they collect this information so they can serve you with a better customer experience.

But is that what really they use your personal information for?

This is the question based on which EU enforced a new privacy regulation GDPR and permanently changed the way online businesses collect, store, & use customers’ personal information.

What is GDPR?

GDPR basically stands for General Data Protection Regulation which was implemented on 25th May 2018 across the entire EU as well as EEA region.

It was created in order to help EU citizens get better control over how their personal data is used and is completely protected.

Today, the GDPR legislation applies to all companies & businesses all over the world that sell any goods or services to citizens in Europe.

Simply put, the GDPR legislation is EU’s new way to give its citizens more power over their data and less power to companies & businesses that collect and use their data for monetary gains.

Now, if you’re planning to expand your operations to Europe, then it is absolutely necessary to comply with the GDPR legislation.

And the good news is, if your eCommerce store is based on Magento 2 platform, then making your store compliant with GDPR is extremely easy.

All you need to do is install & configure the Magento 2 GDPR Extension into your store.
