GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a European Union (EU) regulation governing data privacy, which places new requirements on individuals and businesses offering services both within and into the EU. The aim of the GDPR is to harmonize the existing patchwork of data privacy laws currently in place across most of Europe, additional member countries of the European Economic Area (EEA).

The GDPR went into effect on May 25, 2018, and gives individuals in the EU more transparency, rights, and control around the way their personal information is used. It also provides rights for data deletion, access, and portability.

How It’s important?

Extra safeguarding the privacy of our community of buyers and sellers has always been protected to how we do things here at elaavx. Here’s a number of summary we’ve made:

Transparency around how personal information is used

  • We’ve our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions to provide more details about how we collect, use, and safeguard your personal information and the additional rights that this regulation offers you.
  • Sellers who are based in the EU or offer to sell to EU buyers, as well as sellers in other jurisdictions with similar requirements, must create and comply with their own GDPR-compliant privacy policy, in addition to elaavx policies. In support of this, We’ve provided an additional field in your elaavx shop policies where you can create a privacy policy that will be visible to buyers.
  • We’ve privacy features, giving more control over how personal information is used for marketing, advertising, and tracking on elaavx. EU members can access these features under Privacy Policy on web, mobile web, and on the elaavx shopping apps.

We’ll continue to review and update site features to address privacy requirements such as GDPR to give you more control over your information, as well as more transparency into elaavx privacy practices.

How does this impact sellers?

As an elaavx seller if you sell in or into the EU, you may need to:

  • Generate your own GDPR-compliant privacy policy in your elaavx shop policies for buyers to read and understand. For more information on setting your own privacy policy, read here.

  • Provide or delete your EU buyers’ personal information (should they request it) if you’re storing or using it outside of elaavx, and adhere to applicable rules on being transparent with how you use buyer information for things like analytics, marketing, or sharing with third parties.

  • Consider consulting with a lawyer for guidance on how these new rules could directly affect you. For more information, read our updated conditions. 

elaavx shop is not located in the EU. Does the GDPR still apply to my business?

If you’re a non-EU seller, certain GDPR changes may still apply to you. For more information, read our term and conditions article on GDPR.

Why are some changes only available to members in the EU?

GDPR is a regulation that relates to individuals in the EU and as such, We’re providing certain changes specific to EU members at this time. However, We’re committed to protecting all users’ information and privacy through our updated policies and global site changes.
