Did this mod ever get developed to be used in later versions of opencart such as 1.5.x 2.0 or later? I think it is a great idea, particularly with the upcoming GDPR data protection laws.
Does no matter if this lines got updated for later versions or not
The GDPR has one rule (beside many others): customer shall be able to remove his account (deleting data associated with his person) at any time.
> The right to be forgotten <
This can be done automatically (via a form by the customer) or manually (by shopowner after request) after approval.
EXCEPT: personal data required for bookkeeping is not allowed to delete (depends on locale laws between 7 and 10 [ore more] years).
Otherwise you get in trouble with your financial department.
What can be done: except the sales data all other records can be anonymized.
And an existing newsletter subscription of this customer (which has to have a Double Optin solution at registration btw.) can be deleted - or if stored with IP > anonymized.
One exception from this rule exist: if a (criminal) court decision exists not to delete this data (e.g. in case of fraud or other criminal activity).
