What do I need to know about Sliced Invoices and GDPR?

The European Union has enacted legislation called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which goes into effect May 25, 2018. As of the time of this writing, the impacts of this legislation are not fully clear, however the Sliced Invoices team is monitoring the situation closely and will post updates here as necessary.

We are not lawyers, so we can’t offer any legal advice on GDPR compliance. That said, the following information is here to help you understand how Sliced Invoices stores data and what this means with regard to GDPR.

Sliced Invoices stores all data using built-in WordPress functions, so it should be easy to include Sliced Invoices data in whatever tools you are using to make your overall site GDPR compliant.

For example, all Sliced Client data is saved as part of the WordPress User record… so however you choose to give users access to their user data, Sliced Client data would automatically be included in this.

Similarly, Quotes and Invoices are saved as Custom Post Types in your WP posts table. The existing functionality already allows you to export or delete quotes/invoices as needed.

If there is anything more specific Sliced Invoices can do which would make it easier to implement GDPR compliance on your site as a whole, just let us know by opening a Feature Request and we’ll be happy to look into it.
