Shopify и Закон о защите персональных данных в России

Shopify and the Russian Personal Data Protection Law

In Russia, the Law on the Protection of Personal Data (hereinafter referred to as the Law) is in force. According to the Law, the personal data of Russian citizens must be placed in Russia.

Shopify servers are not yet in Russia. But it is possible to comply with the requirements of the Law if the data is first recorded on servers in Russia and then can be transferred to servers in other countries.

This requirement can be met. To do this, you need to modify the shopping cart page and the buyer's personal account. The purpose of the modification is to write personal data first on the Russian server and then on the Shopify servers. The arguments are detailed in a conclusion, ordered by Microsoft from a law firm, on the use of foreign servers to store personal data of Russian citizens .

It is proposed to use Yandex servers to store personal data of Russian citizens.

There is an application that will ensure the operation of recording personal data and information about the composition of an order on Yandex servers. Access to the accumulated data will be through the Shopify admin area.
