About GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).

Enabling Privacy Features

We’ve added new Privacy Settings page under Settings > Privacy Settings in WSM. It’s available on all branches except Legacy.

  1. The first step is to tick the box in “Privacy Settings” tab at the top of the page to enable the panel, in which case it then shows all the options below.
  2. Then, specify the text and text labels to be used on inputs in the Privacy Panel, which will automatically appear on your webstore.
  3. Click Save Settings at the end of the page to set your changes live.

We also provide two tabs which reference new, built-in Privacy Settings and Terms & Conditions pages. Here, you can enter the necessary policy texts.

To save changes, you need to click save icon in top-left corner of content manager.

These new pages are modelled on About Us and Contact Us – they exist on all stores and have dedicated URLs:

  • /store/go/terms-and-conditions/

  • /store/go/privacy-policy/

Panels

There are 8 panels in total, some of them become visible based on config options. There is a global NitroScript list variable called privacysettings, which contains all of the text entered on the Privacy Settings page.
