GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes live in Europe in one week, May 25th 2018. If you are not yet acquainted with the term, then you should check out our previous article dedicated to the basics of GDPR and the most important actions a website owner need to take in accordance with it.
You could have prepared your WordPress project in advance because the GDPR rules were announced very early. But if you have put this problem aside until the last days, then there is not much time left. In this case you could have think about some opportunities of solving the GDPR issue in a fastest and easiest way possible. Fortunately, WordPress plugins` developers have already brought some ready-to-use solutions for this new must-have feature.
WordPress GDPR is one of the newest plugins that includes the most important features of General Data Protection Regulation. These features are: Forget Me feature for users, Data Breach Reports, Cookies Policy Popup, Data Regulation Office contact form, Request Data from archives feature and Policy Update Newsletter.
Forget Me is one of the essential features from General Data Protection Regulation. The new rules say that a website owner should provide any user the simple possibility to delete all the data collected about him or her by the corresponding web project. WordPress GDPR plugin allows a WordPress admin to create a special form for users. This form gives a user the opportunity to delete his or her personal data by him- or herself. This feature actually relieves a WordPress admin from the necessity to manually delete users` personal data by their requests.
Data Breach Reports present another mandatory feature of a GDPR compliant website. You need to inform your users about any data breach as soon as possible. This feature is inextricably linked with the previous one — once a data breach happens any user should have an opportunity to delete his or her personal data from a dangerous area.
Cookies Policy remains one of the important issues in terms of GDPR compliance. You still need to have user`s permission to save and store any cookies (which are also considered as personal data). Cookies Policy Popup will help you to provide a user with cookies acceptance as soon as he enters your website.
Contact forms for archives` request and data regulation officer feedback are also very important. Your users need to feel themselves protected from any GDPR rules` violation. That is why these forms need to connect you with them. Policy Update Newsletter is another way to keep track of updates and keep in touch with your users simultaneously.Get WordPress GDPR View Demo
