What is GDPR and how it will affect your website?
General Data Protection Regulation is a set of rules that applies to organisations in all EU member-states and has implications for businesses and individuals across Europe, and beyond.
Within the framework of the new general data protection regulations (GDPR), the emyspot team has made some important changes regarding the personal data of the entire emyspot community.
Google Maps API: Payment charges for third-party applications
Since 11th June, Google has been implementing this plan by making Google Maps API only accessible to application developers and publishers that have activated credit card billing and have an API key.
If you use this service on your website, to display a map or a route, then you are affected by this change.
If you use the PayPal feature to sell online through your website, some developments are to be expected due to a major change at PayPal.
In fact, PayPal will require its users to have an SSL certificate to continue using its online payment services. And this change is effective since 30th June 2018.
