If you have customers in the European Union, enable this feature so they can opt in to sending their data to our secure servers in the United States.However, whilst that may be required for US-based customers of FoxyCart, I think it's not necessarily required for EU folks like me who are bound by the GDPR. My reasoning is as follows.
Until Safe Harbor 2.0 or an equivalent is in place, European customers are required to give their consent to send their data to the United States. This feature adds a required checkbox to your checkout page which they must check in order to complete the transaction.
A transfer of personal data [from the EU] to a third country or an international organisation may take place where the [European] Commission has decided that the third country, a territory or one or more specified sectors within that third country, or the international organisation in question ensures an adequate level of protection. Such a transfer shall not require any specific authorisation.Now, thanks to FoxyCart's participation in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework [ https://wiki.foxycart.com/static/foxycart_security#foxy_is_a_member_of_the_eu-us_and_swiss-us_privacy_shield_framework ], an "adequacy decision" by the European Commission exists for FoxyCart's US-based processing and transfer of my EU customers' personal data [ https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en ].
