GDPR Retail: How do I obtain valid consent?

  • You need to make sure people understand what they’re agreeing to when they give you their personal information. According to the GDPR , consent must be free, specific, informed and unambiguous .

    • Consent is free if the site can also be used by the customer without analysis cookies (logically, technically necessary cookies cannot be deselected). Consentmanager automatically blocks all cookies without consent . This ensures that you are on the safe side.

    • Consent is specific if individual cookies can be allowed and consent does not have to be general. This also means that the specific selection must be able to be changed by the user at any time. With the cookie consent banners from Consentmanager, separate consents are easily possible and administrable. According to the GDPR, customers also have the right to information and deletion. This means that you must be able to locate or delete individual cookies upon request. Consider the time and labor resources required for this legislative requirement alone. Consentmanager simplifies and accelerates this process.

    • Consent is informed if you instruct the customer completely and transparently about the exact data and their use (processing/passing on to third parties). Consentmanager’s cookie notices are always legally compliant and available in over 30 languages.

    • Consent is unequivocal if it is an opt-in procedure and the customer actively expresses his will by ticking the options. Preselected checkbox options are not allowed. Consentmanager’s cookie banners follow the international standard TCF 2.0 (Transparency Consent Framework).

  • Many cookie banners are not designed to be legally compliant and carry a high risk of warnings. If you run an online shop in retail or are completely dependent on your website during the corona pandemic, you should ensure a high level of legal and data protection in e-commerce with Consentmanager.

Where can we pick you up?

Marketing managers, CRM managers and retailers are often skeptical about data collection due to the many regulations of the GDPR. The data collection must be done properly, otherwise this can lead to a loss of privacy and thus to fines. Not collecting data is not an option because marketing campaigns must be tailored to target audiences.

The retail challenges with consent management

Getting to know and analyzing the target group is much better for retailers in e-commerce than in stationary trade due to the amount of data and data processing. There, customers come and go anonymously without leaving any traces.

Thanks to Google Analytics, cookies & Co., you have a more comprehensive insight into your online shop and can therefore set up your campaigns and strategies more efficiently. At the same time, customers are happy about the right products or offers. With personalized campaigns that match the preferences of the customers, you will achieve far better results and can also use your know-how for local trade.

The whole challenge of consent management lies in personalization . You adapt to your customers’ choices and ask them to choose how they want to interact with you. This puts them in control of their preferences. Customer-centric marketing is an important part of any business.

A business needs to understand how to use the right tools to achieve its goals. A business also needs to know what kind of information it needs to collect from its customers.

Create trust with consent management

The processing of personal data on the Internet is one of the most sensitive issues in terms of data protection in retail. Therefore, do not judge the regulations in data protection as a necessary evil, but use them as a competitive advantage: Show your customers that you protect personal data and fully support the needs of your target group. Build trust.

Of course, this starts with compliance with the GDPR regulations on cookie banners. But with Consentmanager you go further: You design the design according to your wishes and show your corporate identity settings at the first contact. Make the cookie banner part of your brand. This ensures a recognition value for your brand.

Furthermore, data processing is only permitted with express consent. Customers can revoke this consent at any time. A simple e-mail is sufficient for this. The rights to data processing remain after the consent has been revoked. The restriction of data processing can also be requested.

Thanks to the simple administration of cookie consent, you can process customer inquiries quickly and reliably. Even if the consent is revoked for the moment, you have taken the opportunity to make an excellent and professional impression. This is modern customer loyalty.

Put your customer in control

Data protection is more than just the protection of personal data. It’s about giving customers control over how their data is used. Make sure you collect user feedback and use it to improve your product . Your users should be happy with your product, and if they aren’t, make changes to fix the problem
