  1. Hi Balazs,

    Thank you!
    These are definitely features we want to include down the road. Will bump them up to the next sprint.

  2. Hi Guys this is really good so far as it goes. Great for comments too. But my understanding of the new law is that the check box in WooCommerce must be checked if customer agrees to, for example, receiving promotions by email/smailmail (I have to make explicit in the text box exactly what they are consenting to, and keep a detailed and dated record of this consent and how it was obtained). At present, the plugin does not allow them to leave the box blank, and thereby withhold this consent. As for granting permission to process their data to complete the order, that’s already in terms and conditions, for which WooCommerce has its own check box, so I don’t need this plug-in for that. So to cut a long story short, is there any way we can get an option on the plugin to allow the customer to leave the check box blank? THAT would be exactly what I need. Many thanks.

  3. Great work, guys!

    I second the requests for Formidable Forms and the Divi Contact Form, and would furthermore request Caldera and Elementor Forms as well.

    An important feature also seems to be the documentation of the user agreeing to having his data stored and handled. How is this handled in the plugin so far?

    Also, I second those requests by Balazs Revesz regarding exporting and deleting user data.


    (I bet your active installations will explode leading up to May…)

    1. Hi Alex, thanks for your comment. In the next update we’ll focus on the user explicitly agreeing. Exporting and deleting user data is also set for the next sprint.

  4. Hi, add another request for Divi Contact Form module please & Caldera Forms, which I use extensively.


  5. Hello,

    Nice plugin! I wish you add Divi Contact Form Module.
    I think it would be a good feature because … (i quote DIVI website below:)
    “437,821 Customers Are Already Building Amazing Websites With Divi.”

    Hats off for a job well done.
    Keep on going because it’s worth it!

  7. Beste,

    Bedankt voor de geweldige mooie plugin! Wij gebruiken ‘m op onze website.

    Ik wil graag nog een verzoek indienen omdat er een WordPress plugin staat nog niet in jullie rijtje staat bij de backlog.
    Wij gebruiken Tawk WordPress plugin voor live chat sessies op onze bedrijfswebsite.

    Willen jullie misschien ook Tawk plugin willen toevoegen aan de backlog van WP GDPR Compliance plugin?

    Voor meer informatie over de WordPress plugin:

    Alvast bedankt!

    Met vriendelijke groet,

  8. Hello, could you release any documentation as to how we could add our own stuff to it? I’m using a big sum of plugins each with their own capabilities that may or may not run depending on certain factors.

    1. Good one – we’ve added it to our backlog but will focus on expanding the plugin quickly at this time.

  9. This is great as far as it goes but the important other half of GDPR is that anyone who has submitted data to a site can download it or delete it – this would include visitors who have left comments. They have a right to remove any data held by anyone. Will you be addressing this in a future release?

    1. Hi John – Yes! This is our main focus when working on version 1.3 so stay tight. It’ll be here soon 🙂

  10. Hi,

    this is great work! I’d like to see you support “Easy Digital Downloads” since that’s probably an often used product.

  11. 1. Thrive Quiz Builder [thrivethemes.com/quizbuilder/]
    2. Thrive Leads [thrivethemes.com/leads/]
    3. Thrive Comments [thrivethemes.com/comments/]
    4. Ultimate Membership Pro [https://codecanyon.net/item/ultimate-membership-pro-wordpress-plugin/12159253]
    WP Social Login

  12. Will you be adding support for the WordPress WP-Ecommerce plugin, to comply with the GDPR?

    I think a simple checkbox on the checkout page would be great, if this is something that you would like to look at supporting in one of your updates?

    Kind Regards,


  13. Great plugin!

    Please add bbPress to your list.

    Next I think it is a good idea for you to participate in the discussion over at https://make.wordpress.org/core/tag/gdpr-compliance/
    A lot is going on over there to make WordPress GDPR compliant in its core. Although it is a great initiative to develop this plugin (and please continue) I personally think it is a better for everyone to have it in the core. Because I do understand that a lot of work has to be done before we reach that point I ask you to continue the great work.

  14. Thanks a lot for this plugin. Looking forward to use it on my client sites.

    I spent the last couple of days reading through DSGVO/GDPR stuff and took notes of all the things I have to do on all the sites I’ve built… these new legal requirements can really cause a headache.

    As quite some of my clients use Divi, I’d like to +1 for Divi Contact Forms.

    What do you think about adding these features?
    – Don’t store IPs of comments in DB.
    – Remove IPs of older comments from DB.
    – Remove/Disable Emoji code (as this adds a request to s.w.org).
    – Add an option to disable the “show avatars” option (already possible in Settings > Discussion, but very likely most of the the people are not aware that this request to Gravatar is also not really GDPR-proof).

    Is there any way to contribute to the plugin and e.g. create pull requests for new features? E.g. for numbers 1 and 3 above, there are already “copy-pasteable” solutions available, so they could be added quickly.
