General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union regulation which is effective from Friday 25th May, 2018.  The GDPR places new obligations and responsibilities on individuals and businesses offering services from and within the European Economic Area (EEA).  The EEA consists of all EU members states, plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

We understand the importance of safeguarding the privacy of our community of buyers and sellers and complying with the General Data Protection Regulation.  To reflect our commitment to ensuring your personal data is fully protected, we have made a few adjustments.  One of these changes includes the updating of our Privacy Policy which sets out how we collect and use your personal information and what your individual data protection and privacy rights are.

What we are doing?

We have been working hard to determine what changes we have needed to implement to ensure compliance with the GDPR.

Here are a few of the changes you will see:

Greater transparency: Our updated Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy have more detail about the information we collect and how we use it.  Our policies also outline your choices and the control you have over your information.

Improved functionality for data deletion, access and portability: We are working to provide sellers with improved access and portability for their shop data and buyers, their public profile data.

What we expect of our sellers?

As a 4barsrest.shop seller you may need to:

  • Create and comply with your own GDPR-compliant privacy policy.  We are working to provide an additional field for sellers to create a privacy policy which will be visible to buyers.
  • Provide or delete personal information relating to EU customers if you are storing or using it off our website, if requested by the customer.

We will continually review and update our website features to address the GDPR and provide our community of buyers and sellers with greater transparency and control over their data.
