GDPR in a Retail Environment (RA005)


Description
How do you feel about giving people your personal data? Y’know, your name, your favorite shoe brand? You might be protective over your data, or you might feel fine about giving it away. In online retail, you have a lot of power over your customers’ data. And with great power comes great responsibility. And that responsibility is spelled GDPR.

GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation, is a European Union (EU) law that protects personal data. If your organization ships to the European market, this law applies to you, too. It may well affect how you’re expected to collect and store customer data. Although it sounds like extra work, GDPR brings advantages, including improved customer loyalty.
