The GDPR

I see a recent thread on the upcoming General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) has been removed. Presumably because we touched on a few issues that Sellerdeck would rather weren't discussed on the forum.

Can I add to the wish list the request that Sellerdeck looks at the requirements of the GDPR and builds in the features required to ensure we are able to comply with the regulations when using Sellerdeck desktop.

A positive response to this request would alleviate the need to discuss the regulations in detail and what might be needed to ensure compliance.

Mike

IIRC I think the OP deleted this thread.

OK. It seems an odd thing to delete but there we go.

Having looked at the upcoming regulations it would be nice if sellerdeck would look at the options for protecting individuals data in the sellerdeck desktop database.

We are actively investigating the GDPR requirements and we have a good feel for the changes that will be needed. We are committed to supplying software that is fully compliant, well before the new regulations come into force. At this stage I cannot say exactly when that will be, or which software versions will be supported.

How is this likely to effect us?

We only store customer data within sellerdeck, and printed data sheets.

The regulations don't only cover how you store data, but how you use it. Everyone who has a business will need to get familiar with them. We will ensure that users of our software and services can comply with them, and we will advise on any configuration changes that are necessary. But we won't be able to offer wider advice on general compliance issues.

Can I just add that should there be changes such as encryption of customer's personal details to protect privacy that these changes be limited to the customer's personal details and not the whole database.

I know there are quite a few of us, myself included, that query the database directly for things like stock management, google shopping feeds, pricing adjustments, etc so the ability to keep doing this is important.

I'd imagine the people that have developed tools to work with sellerdeck would also have similar requirements.

Mike
