Why do I need data protection in e-commerce-commissioned?

The more relevant the technology becomes, the more the use of e-commerce increases. Big or small, all types of online retailers are responsible for ordering goods through to delivery. In order for customers to properly receive the products or services they have purchased, online retailers are particularly reliant on keeping customers' personal information secure, including:

  • Full name
  • Address
  • Email address and telephone number
  • Account information

E-commerce in particular is severely affected by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The processing of customer data happens regularly and can end negatively for online retailers due to careless handling. The requirements of the GDPR must therefore be observed in order to prevent consequences such as damage to image, loss of trust and fines. It is therefore crucial with what care and transparency sensitive customer data is handled in accordance with data protection measures.

Choose heyData and benefit from your personal and professional contact person who ensures data protection compliance at all levels and at the highest level.
