The functionality described in this article is a part of the GDPR Compliance (EU) add-on that first appeared in CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.7.4.
Here’s how an administrator can work with personal data:
In the Administration panel, go to Customers → Customers.
Click on the name of the customer whose data you’d like to work with.
The customer editing page will open. Switch to the GDPR user data tab.
On this tab, you’ll be able to:
View the personal data of the customer collected from various sources in your store (such as comments and reviews, orders, newsletter subscriptions, etc.).
Export the personal data as an XML file by clicking the Export to XML button.
Anonymize the customer by clicking the Anonymize button. This action will randomly generate personal data for the selected customer and replace the actual data with it in all the listed sources. For example, that way the order history will still be there, but the customer’s actual personal data won’t be.
Please note that anonymization will also affect the
cscart_gdpr_user_agreements table that stores the logs of consent for personal data processing given by customers. However, anonymization will not affect:
Anonymization can’t be undone, unless you return your database to a previous state by restoring it from a backup you made earlier.
