Preparing Your OCC Sites for GDPR (February 2018)
SummaryIntroduction for Oracle Commerce Cloud customers on preparing for upcoming European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Merchants serving webstores to shoppers in the European Union (EU) and collecting their data must comply with European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which was approved in 2016 and will become effective on May 25, 2018. After that date, organizations found to be in non-compliance will potentially face heavy fines. If you operate in the EU, it is important to prepare in advance for GDPR compliance.
This regulation is designed to protect the data privacy of all EU residents and requires website operators, among other requirements, to consider any applicable notice and consent requirements when collecting personal data from shoppers (e.g. using cookies).
