More European Data Privacy thoughts

Under the European Genderal Data Privacy Rules (GDPR) now in place, European Union users of your site need to know if you are using cookies and what data they collect (eg Facebook pixels).

There are new apps available in the Shopify App store that will add a GDPR notification popup for European Users. Some only pop up to those with IP addresses in the EU to avoid annoying other users.  Take a look at the features offered by each and decide which is the best for you. 

GDPR cookie notification apps

These apps are well worth considering if there is a chance you will have EU customers on your site.

Remember to re-test your site thoroughly after adding any new apps - including on mobile, tablet, and other browsers. Make sure you can still search, add to cart, check out, and sign up to your newsletter.

As usual, please take this as a guide only, for legal advice please consult your Lawyer.

"The fantastic team at really know their craft! They don't just build and design websites, but they really understand the needs, concerns and challenges that the small business owner has; whether they are just starting out or they are seasoned entrepreneurs.

Kim and her team, and a special shout out to Tina and Nicole, have worked on two websites for me now, and both times I hade always felt I was in safe and competent hands. They clearly explained everything during the project, and as a non-techie person I never felt I was talked down or any comments dismissed.

I wholeheartedly recommend eChic for all your eCommerce website needs . They are very approachable and offered me great value for my websites."
