Internet Pure and Simple – Online Mini Class

Online independence is critical to reforming the online marketplace. This class is a first step. Once you learn a few things, you will find it easy to share with others and help shift a problematic that must be addressed for a new economy.

GDPR stands for General Date Protection Regulation and is thus far the most stringent requirement to protect personal information online. Merchant services are provided through GDPR compliant merchant services, Stripe. Philantro was developed in U.S. for nonprofits and is now based in Great Britain. Despite Brexit, Great Britain and the Commonwealth continue to require GDPR in online communications. GDPR is more stringent than CCPA, California’s recently implemented California Consumer Privacy Act.
