To update the component you don't need any particular operations.
Once downloaded the latest release from your reserved area, you need simply to upload and install the package using the Joomla Extensions Manager as usual. During the installation the extension will be updated and files overwritten automatically. After that, when you access the control panel of GDPR you will be prompted with a green label informing you that the latest version is installed.
After having updated the component, no settings or configuration will be lost. Only the files and database tables used by the component will be updated, but all settings and data sources will be preserved.
REMEMBER TO CLEAR THE BROWSER CACHE AFTER UPDATES TO REFRESH SCRIPTS AND STYLES.
Although to update the component it's only required to download and install the latest package using the Joomla installer, as long as you have a valid ongoing updates license you may choose to take advantage of the standard Joomla! Updater.
To use the Joomla! Updater it's required to specify exactly your email address used to register your account and make the purchase on our store https://storejextensions.org. This is done to check the validity status of your updates license and automatically prompt you to download and install updates as soon as they are available.
