I set up a limited company and shopify shop recently, and received a letter from ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) in UK. It states that I every company that holds customers information on a computer must pay an annual fee for Data Protection purposes. My shop has yet to start functioning, does anyone else from UK are aware of this? are we liable to pay this fee if using shopify?
Whether you need to pay a fee will be based on whether or not you handle certain pieces of data about customers. The ICO has a self-assessment quiz to check if you are exempt: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-fee/self-assessment/
