Starting in May 25, 2018, the new legislative requirements regulate how the users’ information should be collected, stored and processed in order to comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation document.
A bit of fresh statistics shows the next results.
This new regulation affects most of the businesses that are tightly connected to the web. Hence, the vast majority of e-commerce stores serving customers from the European Union are obliged to follow the new rules to avoid penalties and other claims from the legislative.
As for now, many online stores utilize one of the well-known e-commerce platforms equipped with dozens of additional extensions or plugins to get more functionality. That’s why we at Amasty did a great job to make sure that all our customers will receive updates to their Magento extensions in order to comply with the EU’s GDPR requirements.
Moreover, we released two brand new extensions called GDPR and GDPR for Magento 2 and ensured GDPR compliance in other modules (for example, Magento blog extension). This should help businesses to easily add the required functionality to their e-commerce stores.
This article will give you a sneak-peak of our latest GDPR-related activities, so you can stay calm about personal data processing in your store.

And we will begin right from the specially designed extensions called GDPR. Both modules provide customers with mostly the same functionality depending on the version of the Magento Commerce platform. This includes:
