There’s also a larger issue at play: privacy isn’t a one time effort. It’s part of the ongoing maintenance for your business.
The GDPR is only the latest law designed to shift the balance of power back to consumers — it builds on older laws like the UK’s DPA. And it won’t be the last; store owners can expect updates to the GDPR, and similar laws will be enacted in other countries. Keeping abreast of these laws and which ones apply to you is an ongoing responsibility.
