  1. This subject has got us all racing round (again) making changes to our websites to comply (or at least what we understand as complying). I seem to remember us all doing this with the cookie law..... This makes some interesting reading: http://barker.co.uk/cookielaw So lets do all we can but not get too paranoid........
  2. @puddlec Thanks for the link. A lot of my customers are old farmers who do not use the internet - so email etc is out of the question. The link ou provided gives details on recording verbal consent - which I will do in the order comments box when compiling their order. Anyone got any further comments?
  3. OK I think I am almost there, apart from one little thing that does not seem to have been covered. Scenario is that a customer places an order by phone and we then enter his order on our website (manual order maker and order editor) this allows us to produce the invoice and process his order as a normal web order - problem is that he will not have seen our privacy policy or any of our GDPR statements. The only way I can see round this is to read each customer a rather long and boring statement such as Any comments or alternative solutions would be welcome....
  4. @14steve14 Thanks for the info on the analytics opt-out tool - I have now added a link to the privacy policy to point to this. I have MATC installed at the checkout confirmation page which I point with links to the Privacy Policy and the Conditions of the website plus I have added text to the create account pages with links to our privacy policy. I also have the system set up to attach a pdf version of our terms and conditions, shipping terms and privacy policy to all customer order confirmation emails Many Thanks
  5. OK I think I have done all I need to do?? Stopped using Google Analytics and deleted the code (I dont use it much anyway) Revised my privacy statement using the examples shown here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/privacy-notices-transparency-and-control/privacy-notices-in-practice/ Added an option in the "My Account" section for customers to delete their account Unsubscibed ALL customers from the mailing list Sent email to all customers explaining about GDPR, Giving them links to our privacy policy, delete account function and telling them how to re-subscribe if they so wish Added a mondial popup to the site informing visitors about our revised privacy policy.
  6. Im taking a more proactive / drastic approach on this.... I intend unsubscribing everyone at a database level, then sending the email informing them that if they want to receive newsletters then to re-subscribe. I will also include a link to our revised privacy policy and a link to the account deletion page.
  7. Another scenario that I have been considering is that when a customer places an order by phone - we then enter his details on our site...... Im considering having a printed statement to read out to them regarding data collection etc.
  8. I guess we are al going to have to cease using Recover Carts Modules?

    Please ignore my post above - while I was writing the post it seemed to rectify itself ??!!?? Very odd but everything seems to be working as it should now. Many Thanks

    PayPal App for osCommerce Online Merchant

    I have just installed the paypal app on my 2 sites - the first one went without issue and works as it should. However, I have installed on the second site and everything works as it should in Admin. BUT when a customer tries to add something to the shopping cart (or view the cart) just a white screen is displayed. The error in my error log is: PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class paypal_express in /home/myaccount/public_html/includes/modules/payment/paypal_express.php on line 17 Line 17 of paypal_express.php is as follows: class paypal_express { Any pointers on this would be greatly appreciated as my site is essentially now losing orders. Many Thanks

    Google XML Sitemap SEO

    Hi Jack, Couldnt find anything on this during a quick scan of the previous pages. I have just added .htaccess code to my site to redirect the whole site to SSL as per post #9 of this thread: http://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/410451-time-to-get-secure-if-you-havent-already/ When I generate a new sitemap it generates the links as HTTP - is there a way I can change the sitemap so it will generate all links as HTTPS ? Many Thanks
