About the GDPR Links and the Check Box
One of the benefits of FastSpring's service is that we take care of compliance with local regulations automatically. As the merchant and seller of record, FastSpring is the responsible party for all transactions we process.
- Customers who are not in the EU or certain other locations will see the new section, but will not be required to indicate acceptance of the terms and policy.
The following is an example of how the new section appears in a store that uses the default style with no modifications.
Controlling the Style of the Links and the Check Box
Who is Affected?
If you have never modified the appearance and styling of your store pages, you do not need to take any action to style the new compliance links and check box.
If you have modified your store's style template and your store already uses a custom field, it is very likely that you have already adjusted your store's style template to present the custom field with suitable styling, and you will not have to take any additional action to style the new compliance links and check box.
If you have modified your store's style template and have not previously used a custom field, the modified visual style of your store pages may differ to the default style of the custom field that will be presented to customers. In that case, you may want to update your store's style template to include styling for the custom field.
How to Review and Adjust the Style of the GDPR Compliance Links and Check Box
If style changes are needed, we recommend that you use the services of a web developer to adjust your store's style template. Your web developer can inspect the custom field elements in the store page preview to identify what changes should be made.
To make the changes, first download your custom style template by selecting Styles from the home menu, clicking the name of your style, and then clicking the download hyperlink for the zip file on the next page.
It is a good idea to keep an unmodified backup copy of the style template in case you need to revert your changes. See our article XHTML Style Creation Tips for the basics of store style editing.
