Meet CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.7.4 with GDPR Support


We have released CS-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.7.4. The main reason for this release is the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union. The regulation will become enforceable on 25 May 2018. That way you’ll have more than 2 weeks to prepare for it.

GDPR Compliance

The GDPR is a European Union regulation on personal data processing. It affects everyone who collects and uses personal data (that includes contact information or addresses) of EU citizens and residents. To learn more, check out an article about GDPR compliance in our blog.

Version 4.7.4 comes with an add-on that informs new customers about how you handle personal data. The add-on also helps you manage that data: anonymize it or export it to an XML file. Please see our documentation about the add-on for more information.

There are two ways to get the add-on:

The add-on by itself is not enough to make you GDPR-compliant. You’ll need to review the requirements of the GDPR and address them. For example, you’ll probably need to change the text of privacy notices and get to consent for personal data processing from your existing customers by email (the add-on doesn’t handle that).

Other Changes

Version 4.7.4 also includes improvements to Beta add-ons:

As usual, the full list of changes can be found in the changelog. The upgrades to version 4.7.4 are already available. We provide upgrades in small batches, so if you don’t see this upgrade in your Upgrade Center yet, please try again later.
