J2Store GDPR

J2Store is a popular webshop for Joomla. Webshops need to store personal information (like name, address) for legal obigations (invoices) and to fullfill their contract (the order) with the customer.


J2Store is a native Joomla shopping cart and e-Commerce extension. It works in an unique way because it makes it possible for webshop owners to use Joomla's articles as products, it's just adds product details to Joomla articles.

  • Adds Delete All Addresses button.
    One click deletion of all addresses of the customer (Only for registered users).
    NOTE: The address associated with an order would not be deleted. 
  • A request form that the customer can use to request all his personal data associated with the orders to be deleted.
  • Editing / deleting activities can be logged and/or notified to both the customers and/or administrators.

Furthermore the developer offers some information about how to make your webshop GDPR compliant: 

General tips for webshops 

  • use SSL for your website so that all communication is transported through a secured line
  • inform your visitors and customers about cookies
  • only collect necessary data
  • check for payment providers - they are processors and you need processor contracts with them
  • inform what data is stored and how long
  • if you store IP-address inform people
  • are you using a currency convertor? Is it an external JavaScript?
