Payment Gateway Improvement & GDPR DATA PROTECTION
Payment Gateway improvements with Barclay Card have just been updated on the website. What this means is customers should notice a new look and feel and an even easier payment gateway that will speed up the check out process when using debit and credit cards. One of the options is something called tokenisation. This allows individuals that regularly purchase to have a token that links to the payment gateway and our site. This is an opt in only option that will display clearly at the relevant time.
GDPR – One of the biggest shake ups in DATA PROTECTION in a very long time has gone seemless for us…….. Our privacy and security has been updated. Opt in buttons made clear to opt in rather than the automatic OPT outs not to receive info…… This was an industry standard that was very vague………and allowed for tiny boxes and information to be kept and passed on by certain UN-reputable companies to third parties for marketing purposes……..
Newsletters: We had to clear up our subscriber list making sure that all the individuals were all correct and relevant. As a company we have only sent out occasional newsletters previously that were informative about how to use products or occasional special offers and new items…. We are looking at increasing how often we send these. However as we have only sent two in two years, one a month will be a hard feat!
With all these new guidelines in place allows us to get finished and get the Lake District Shop OPEN! Watch this space.
