But, there is a small notice that the add-on by itself doesn’t guarantee compliance with the GDPR it only gives you the tools to achieve compliance. And. yes! This addon is free of change. If you don't have this module in your "Installed add-ons", go to another tab "Browse all available add-ons". Be sure that the GDPR add-on will be in this tab and you should install it into your CS-Cart store.




GDPR introduces a set of privacy regulations, which significantly expand the individual rights and protections of EU personal data. Here is what you need to know. Additional information about the GDPR is available on the European Commission’s website.

It applies to organizations established in the EU that process personal data and to organizations based outside the EU that either offers goods or services directly to individuals in the EU or monitor the behavior of individuals in the EU.


Are there CS-Cart product features to help with compliance?

The add-on first appeared in CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.7.4.

UPDATE There is 4.9. version in January 2019 and it's fully adapted to GDPR!

The support staff can offer guidance to those who use older versions; for a small fee, CS-Cart developers can even adapt the add-on for your store but it's better to upgrade your CS-Cart store to the latest version of eCommerce platform. 


By the way, Alt-team developers are happy to adapt CS-Cart and Magento stores to any country's rules of online trading and help to run a successful business!
