Understanding GDPR: An Overview of the Spirit of the Law

Please purchase the course before starting the lesson.

On the surface, GDPR might seem like a burdensome regulation that is causing millions of website owners to jump through a ton of new hoops in order to avoid hefty fines. However, if viewed from the customer's perspective, the spirit of the GDPR legislation seeks to put the customer first, by placing them in control of the data they share with you.

It may come as a surprise to some business owners, but customer's sharing their data with you, whether to leave a blog comment or purchase an item in your WooCommerce store, is a privilege, and one that you should not take for granted, let alone abuse.

At it's core, that is the spirit of GDPR, and if you're a business owner who seeks to profit from abusing your customer's trust, then perhaps you shouldn't be in business in the first place.
