Whether you’re worried about compliance or just want to learn more about how best to prepare for the full force of data protection regulations, this extension is compatible with your needs within seconds.
The Magento 2 GDPR extension in a nutshell
The extension is in a nutshell a Magento 2 extension that is in full compliance with current data protection regulations. All you have to do is to add the Magento 2 data protection plugin to your store. And that’s it, this will automatically add all the necessary code and work with Magento 2 without the need for any code changes. In addition, it also allows you to easily create cookie notices and GDPR related information that you would like to present to your website visitors when someone visits your website.
The Magento 2 GDPR extension will also display the most important information in the specified area, and it will automatically display it if needed. You can also add a notice on your homepage to your website visitors with the cookie you want.
And finally, it also allows you to add the option for consent before people submit their information on your website. This way, they can explicitly agree that they accept that their data is saved and used for whatever you define (for the purpose of example the extension uses ‘marketing’). This way you automatically collect explicit consent from your visitors.
A feature that we like in this extension is that you can create a consent option immediately in the Magento backend with just one click. This way, you don’t need to use complex code to display the consent form in your store. By making it easy to implement GDPR features, this is a great option for any store owner who wants to get ready for the new regulation.

What Website Owners Need to Know About GDPR Compliance
GDPR is a new regulation that took effect on May 25 of 2018. It replaces the current Data Protection Directive. In case you’re not familiar with the Data Protection Directive, it’s a set of rules for businesses that collect and handle information from individuals on their websites. It’s been in place since 1995 and has been updated several times since then. In 2012, the European Union approved two major updates to this set of rules: The Data Retention Directive and the Payment Services Directive.
The new regulation, GDPR, will replace these two directives, which are known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The main reason why Europe is replacing its old set of data protection laws is that the new rules are much stricter. They also give more control to individuals over what companies can do with their information. The new European law allows companies to only use the information they collect for specific reasons.
All companies that work with data must be prepared for this major change. At Webiators Technologies, we’ve been working with Magento 2 stores to help them comply with this new regulation by using the Magento 2 GDPR extension.
