Do you have European Customers? You need to update your site and mailing lists to comply with GDPR by 25 May 18

Is your site ready for the European Union privacy rule changes? If you have (or will have) EU resident clients, it needs to be by 25 May. Here are general steps you need to follow:
 
1 - update your Privacy policy (the page on your website title "Privacy") - you can use the handy privacy policy generator here, (make sure you click the "I'll skip the Shopify trial for now, just create my policy" button, otherwise you will end up with two Shopify sites. Paste the newly generated policy into your website's Privacy Page. Ideally get it reviewed by a lawyer.
 
2 - If using MailChimp - review these instructions. Shout if you need help.
 
 
THIS IS GENERAL ADVICE ONLY - please consult your lawyer for information specific to your situation.
