Hello.
May I ask if there is any plan Opencart to adapt the new GDPR functions of EU regulations like Delete the account ?
Thanks

Well I wrote an article about GDPR and OpenCart:

Specifics for OpenCart

  • In the checkout, make sure you don't automatically subscribe people to your newsletter.
  • Mention GDPR in your Privacy Policy.
  • Delete customers if they ask you to, unless you have a lawful reason to keep their data such as to maintain legal accounting records.
  • Make sure your webhost has anti-malware software running and regularly check your website for malware with something like Sucuri. Notify the ICO (if you have a UK HQ only) if you find anything by clicking here.
  • Use SSL.
But GDPR doesn't specify that account deletion must be implemented in code.

Although maybe Opencart can adapt the delete of the account option .
That would be good !
