Anonymizing a customer or vendor in Sage 300

You would have been getting a lot of emails from companies asking you to reconfirm that you wish to be connected with them and changes to their Privacy Policies. This is due to the new EU GDPR laws that came into Force on May 25 2018. Who is affected : Companies that have customers or vendors in the European Union (EU).The GDPR applies to you if you process or hold the personal data of people residing in the EU, even if your company is located outside the EU. What information is affected: if you process or hold the personal data of people residing in the EU, they may be able to legally require that you “anonymize” them, which means that you stop holding their personal data. In respect to this it means data that can be used to identify a specific person, such as the person’s name, phone numbers, and addresses (both email and physical). What this means to you : This type of data can be stored in Sage 300 for customers and vendors. If one of your customers or vendors asks you to anonymize them, the GDPR may legally require you to comply. In part, this means removing the customer or vendor’s personal data from Sage 300. Disclaimer - I don't profess to be an expert in GDPR compliance this will not be the only thing you need to do. To determine other requirements, and to learn more about the GDPR, see https://www.eugdpr.org If you meet these requirements and use Sage 300 then contact your Sage business partner in relation to the "Sage 300 Anonymizer" Tool. It is a tool that helps you remove a customer or vendor’s personal data from Sage 300. It replaces the customer or vendor’s personal data with text that you specify.
