When establishing or expanding platforms (online shops with external product ranges) legal questions about the drop shipping process often come up. After all, personal data are saved by the platform and then transferred to the connected supplier for direct shipping. Delivery notes and shipping labels are then printed, and goods are transported to the end-consumer.
What legal restrictions do the parties involved have to adhere to?
Does the platform need an ODP (order data processing) from the supplier?
What data protection requirements does the supplier face?
The current whitepaper by Florian Decker, lawyer at RESMEDIA, deals with these questions. You can download it here.
