The Most Popular GDPR for Magento 2v4.0.0
Magento 2 GDPR extension helps e-commerce stores get ready for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is a new set of data privacy regulations giving an important impact not only on European countries but also on all over the world.
- Work perfectly together
How does it work?
In an online store using GDPR, customers can permanently delete their accounts to ensure the security for important information. GDPR also supports customers to anonymize their private information such as name and phone number. Also, the default address of customers can be removed separately by only a few clicks.
What is GDPR?
General Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR) is a set of privacy security standards adopted by EU and is officially in compliance from the 25th of May 2018.
GDPR introduces some significant changes in the data protection laws to help tighten security of citizens’ information online. The regulation consequently gives a strong impact on how companies collect and process personal data.
What is GDPR for?
GDPR is issued by EU in order to ensure the highest level of security of individuals’ private information
Who is under the compliance?
As long as you process and store data of EU citizens, you are affected by GDPR and you have to comply the regulations, regardless of where you are located
Which data is considered to be personal an online store may have?
GDPR introduces some noticeable changes in what kind of information is perceived personal. In Article 4, ‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person
So, information including your customers’ numbers, ID card number, credit card number and others which can identify a human when being associated are under your processing now. But are you ready for your compliance with GDPR?.

Delete customer’s addresses
Customers store important personal information in their default addresses including Billing and Shipping information. These information is not easily removed by default Magento 2 and this is against GDPR.
With Mageplaza GDPR for Magento 2, customers are free to remove their addresses only by few clicks.
Manage billing documents (Pro)
Billing information including data featured in customers’ orders, invoices, credit memos and shipments is seriously important which needs protecting. Your online shoppers, for sure, have rights to manage it themselves, and also, have rights to become anonymous.
To support online stores in solving this issue, Magento 2 GDPR Pro version allows customers to anonymize their private information such as names, phone number or addresses by replacing these data by a random string.
Also, customers’ private information on subscribing requests and abandoned carts will become anonymous.
GDPR Cookie restriction (Pro)
Cookie is a must-have in most of online stores as it helps enhance customer experience. However, using cookie may increase customer’s concern in their privacy security. Hence, online stores should provide a better cookie on their webpages.
Magento 2 GDPR module allows e-commerce stores customize messages using HTML as well as positions to show the Cookie. It is able to be displayed at the top or the bottom of a website. Moreover, Cookie can be restricted to be shown in certain areas or countries based on your settings in the backend also.
Downloadable personal data
In GDPR Pro, customers can download their personal information in CSV or Excel XML files. The information includes:
- Website ID, Group ID, Store ID, Account ID, Store view
- First name, Last name
- Customer ID
- Time created, updated
- Able/ Unable changing customer group
Saving the personal data in CSV/ XML file supports customers to view their information quickly and conveniently. This function is really helpful and time-saving to customers who have many accounts.
Auto-delete customer account
Auto-delete inactive customers is an advanced feature of GDPR (in Pro package). When a customer has not logged in their account for a certain time, their account will be auto-deleted. The store admin can set the number of days from the last login to define an inactive account.
For example, after 30 days from the last login, the account is considered inactive and will be auto-deleted.
Besides, to make a customer aware of their account situation, a notification email can be sent before deleting the account for a number of days.
