With the release of version 4.9.3, J-BusinessDirectory extension has reached it's full maturity. The extension encapsulate now all the functionality that is needed for your directory website.
We have dedicated a lot of time to detect any performance issue that has been reported so far and build a new version that should work fast on any production environment.
Since the GDPR is knocking on the door we have also applied a series or changes to make the extension compliant with the new rules.

GDPR compliance

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be coming into effect on May 25th, 2018. We have adapted the J-BusinessDirectory to be compliant with GDPR rules.

For data that is collected the end user has to give their consent by agreeing with Terms & Conditions. Each directory site should modify the Terms & Conditions and Privacy policy in order to be compliant with the new rules.

Control over user data & information
We make it easy for all users to manage their data and also to be forgotten if they choose this.
Each user has the possibility to delete the whole data that is stored on business directory database.
