Last week, the Amasty team released a big update to their GDPR for Magento 2. Now the extension not only saves online stores from fines but also takes over the routine part of the work.
This way you will meet the local requirements of European countries. For example, in Belgium, people can consent to data processing when they are 13+ years old. If you have customers from Belgium, create a checkbox with an age confirmation for them.
Pass Personal Data To 3rd Parties Upon Request
By law, a person may ask a store to pass personal data to third parties. For example, to another store. With the extension, admins will download a user’s data as a CSV file and send it to whoever they need. This way the online shop won’t get fined.
Automatically Delete Personal Data
By law, personal data may not be stored more than is necessary. For example, some stores collect personal data from orders for 4 months to report to the tax office. After 4 months, the data should be deleted. If they don’t delete it, the store may receive a fine.
It’s difficult to remember to delete data and do it manually. That’s why Amasty added an option to do it automatically. You will just tell the extension after what time to delete data and it do it for you.
With the first option, you will be sure that users have not forgotten about their consent, and they will have no claims to the store. With the second option, you will not irritate users with checkboxes.
