Why GDPR is so important?

You don't use our GDPR/CCPA app, yet? Think twice! Ask Google and Amazon about the consequences.

If you are not sure how important, is to be GDPR compliant, you probably haven’t heard of the problems that Google and Amazon recently have. The two tech giants have been hit with huge fines for dropping tracking cookies without consent. Google has been slapped with €100 million for Google.fr and Amazon with €35 million for Amazon.fr. Although both companies have updated their websites to require user's consent before placing cookies, their cookie information banners have been criticized for not providing enough information to internet users.

No matter what kind of business you run, under GDPR, serious breaches of privacy can lead to fines that can cost your company. That is why every store owner is responsible for its GDPR compliance. You have to be familiar with the major role that GDPR has and you should know that you can collect personal data from users after you have received their explicit consent.

Cookie consent is one of the most common ways of collecting and sharing personal data online. Here are some GDPR Cookie consent requirements that your store must comply with:

  • Explicit consent must be obtained before any activation of cookies, apart from the necessary one.

  • Consent must be detailed - every user should be able to choose what cookies to opt-in or opt-out for.

  • Consent must be freely given, easily withdrawn, and securely stored.

  • It has to be renewed at least once a year.

Cookie banners allow users to select and accept certain cookies for activation when visiting your store.

We want you to be aware of the most important things when dealing with GDPR and cookies in your store. That is why our GDPR/CCPA + Cookie Management app is the best solution for you. You become GDPR compliant after just a few clicks. Our app is super intuitive and gives you endless possibilities for customization. It offers features that you will not find in any other GDPR/CCPA solution. It includes:

  • Cookie management - Our cookie banner allows your visitors to choose which cookies exactly to accept when clicking on the Preferences button.
