I'm reading about GDPR EU privacy law and I have some questions about how Opencart can become compliant.
I'm not a lawyer but a developer and I have no liability for the accuracy of the information.

Dead line is May 25 2018 and, as far as I know, organizations risk fines of up to €20 million or 4% of the organization’s global yearly turnover, whichever is higher.

I read that some requirement are request only for Companies with minimum X employees or X revenue.

what is seems is requires is:

- User can delete their data from database. As far as I know, is not possible in Opencart. What happen to orders and all related records?
- After 24 months of inactivity ( no login ) user account should be delated from DB. As far as I know, is not possible in Opencart.
- Cookie need to have opt-in opt-out option. I link a website as an example:

Those are the requirement that I'm aware of, note sure if all companies need to be compliant or just who as more than X employees or X revenue.

This inquiry never stops to worry people does it? Take a look at this topic: viewtopic.php?f=190&t=203265&p=719186#p719186

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming.
