Commerce cloud company Digital River, a global provider of Commerce-as-a-Service solutions, will present a free webinar – ‘How to get your ecommerce ready for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)’ on January 31 at 10:00 a.m. CST time.
The European Parliament and Council introduced the GDPR to standardize data protection requirements across the European Union (EU). The GDPR would change the way business is conducted with consumers around the world, with massive implications for global ecommerce. Nearly every organization that does online business and processes or receives data of EU citizens, regardless of the company’s geographic location, must be compliant with the higher standard of data handling practices.
During Digital River’s free webinar, presenters will talk about the widespread impact the GDPR will have on e-commerce companies and outline the steps they must take to comply when the new regulation goes into effect in May 2018. To register for the upcoming free webinar, click here.
“Digital River specializes in global e-commerce and is committed to partnering with our clients, taking on the risks of selling in global markets by managing regulatory compliance and taxes on their behalf,” said Christopher Rence, Digital River’s chief information and risk officer. “While many brands are either unaware or unsure of the impact the GDPR will have on their businesses, the dedicated teams at Digital River are prepared to ensure GDPR readiness by May of 2018, when the new regulation will be in full force. Following the webinar, attendees will be at a competitive advantage, have solid strategies for meeting new data handling requirements, and understand how to strengthen the relationship between its brand and EU customers while being respectful of consumer privacy concerns.”
From start to finish, Digital River would make it easy to manage storefronts, take orders, process payments, automate subscriptions and drive delivery. At the same time, the company works behind the scenes to handle fraud, billing, taxes and compliance, so businesses and consumers can shop with confidence and peace of mind. Digital River is headquartered in Minneapolis with offices across the U.S., Asia, Europe and South America.
