If your online store is based in the EU (European Union) or your store targets shoppers in the EU, then GDPR applies to you. EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an update to regulations for the processing of data and private information online. This will apply to online stores based in the European Union or those that do extensive business in Europe. GDPR places the responsibility on businesses to give individuals more control over their personal data. If your online store violates the regulations, you could face penalties. As an eCommerce platform, StoreHippo is compliant with GDPR and provides the various features that make it compliant. Now, there may be some requirements your business will need to take to make your store fully compliant.
