4 Steps to Ensure Compliance
Step 1: Customer Privacy
To be compliant, you need to activate customer privacy from your store preferences. Head to your Shopify Admin > “Online Store” > “Preferences”, and under the “Customer privacy” section, choose the “Collected after consent” option and then Save.
If you have added Google Analytics from the Online Store preferences, you must check the Enhanced Ecommerce and then Save.
Step 2: Banner Type / Consent Mode
Open the app from the "Apps" heading on the left-side menu > "Settings" > "Banner" > “Behavior”, and on the top, you can select the Banner Type / Consent Mode.
To comply, we recommend you select Accept/Decline or Accept only.
Note: If you are on any paid plan, we recommend selecting Preferences (which is more detailed). Under the Preferences, please select the Strict policy and make sure at least the Decline and Accept buttons are checked for you.
Step 4: Customer data requests Page
The customer data requests page is your final step. To keep transparency, you need to ensure your visitors are fully aware of what data is being collected and how it’s being used, and also give them the option to update their consent and make any requests regarding their personal data collected on your store.
The Customer Data Requests form needs access to the Customers & Orders data to function correctly. So the first step is to provide the necessary permissions to our application by clicking the Grant access button.
As mentioned in the installation guide, this page can be created in two ways.
The quickest way is with the code snippet. Open the app from the "Apps" heading on the left-side menu > "Settings" > "Customer data requests", and on the top, you can click on the "View instructions" button. On the popup, copy the snippet code.
<div id="pandectes-dsr-container"><!-- leave empty --></div>
Then on the left-side menu, open Online Store > Pages. Click "Add Page" on the top right and put as a title Customer Data Request or Data Subject Requests (or any other title you want). In the Content, click the right button that says "Show HTML" and in the textarea, paste the code snippet. Finally, Save from the top right.
