About UWP Access

What is GDPR?

GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, is a new privacy law that gives EU customers more control over their personal data. And, with fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual revenue, GDPR is simply too important to ignore.

GDPR creates stricter rules on how EU customer data must be handled. Businesses handling personal data for EU customers must have a legally valid reason for doing so, and be able to justify this in simple terms. Meaning more transparency for EU customers, and greater protection of fundamental data protection rights.

In addition, customers have to right to have their data corrected or removed, and can request all personal data be handed over to them. EU customers are protected from having their data collected for one reason and being used for something entirely different.

Why be GDPR compliant?

Online Shopify merchants can’t afford to make mistakes when it comes to guaranteeing they are compliant with this new EU regulation. Apart from the obvious, which is avoiding hefty fines, being GDPR compliant is a great opportunity to gain the trust of EU customers, whilst meeting EU regulations.

GDPR compliance gives you the added advantage over competitors with EU customers, as it increases their confidence in your brand. Showing your EU customers that you care about safeguarding their customer data rights in an increasingly digital world is a great way to gain their trust, and can double up as a legitimate marketing tactic.

Great app

easy to use and makes a complicated issue very easy and manageable


We’ve installed this app to help us with responding to subject access requests and it’s been really helpful. We were struggling to come up with a process to manage them, and meet the 72 hour time frame. It was simple and quick to install and it’s an easy experience for the customer. They can log into their account, click on the access info icon thing, then fill out their email address. Then we instantly get an alert through so we know that a request has come through and we can investigate. The customer then gets an email with a link to download their data securely, which was also another hurdle for us – trying to figure out how to safely send them their data.
Sure, it doesn’t handle the entire SAR needed e.g. other channels and partners that have their info but it gets the ball rolling and handles the part for what Shopify / the web platform hold on the customer. It’s definitely ticked one thing off my list!
