What is Data Collection text and why is it important for your store's compliance?

In this blog post, we will be talking about the Data Collection text that can be seen at the bottom of every Preferences popup in the Consentmo app. What exactly is this text, what is its purpose, and if and when you can change it - let's discuss.

What is the Data Collection text?

The purpose of this text is for the visitor/customer on your website to know that by clicking on the Cookie bar buttons they are giving their consent that we (iSenseLabs LLC) as a processor of information will use the up-listed data (IP and email if registered) in order to execute the request. We keep this information for 12 months and after this period is over, the information gets deleted as per the GDPR/CCPA/APPI/PIPEDA laws.

In the text, there is a link to a compliance page, based on the option Enable for Specific Regions. Here is how the link works:

  • If your bar is set to show only for EU/EEA Visitors (GDPR) + Brazil (LGPD) the link will redirect to your GDPR Compliance page.
  • If your bar is set to show only for California Visitors (CCPA) the link will redirect to your CCPA Compliance page.
  • If your bar is set to show only for Canada Visitors (PIPEDA) the link will redirect to your PIPEDA Compliance page.
  • If your bar is set to show only for Japan Visitors (APPI) the link will redirect to your APPI Compliance page.
  • If your bar is set to show all the regions available for the Free Plan users - EU/EEA + Brazil, California, Canada, and Japan, the link will redirect to the respective page as per the visitor's location.
  • If your bar is set to show for All Countries, and a visitor from a region, different from the ones listed above, the link will redirect to your GDPR Compliance page.
Should the Data Collection text be changed?

Generally, we do not recommend changing the Data Collection text. We have automatized the process, so we can make sure that the pages are fully compliant with the GDPR laws. The change of the link in the Data Collection text can be allowed in specific cases like having a data subject request page already set on your store. If you want to proceed with any changes, please contact our support at apps-support@isenselabs.com.

Disclaimer
Before you set up a personal request page and amend the default Data Collection text, make sure that you consult with a local GDPR advisor.
