The GDPR Framework


Easy to use tools to help make your website GDPR-compliant.

GDPR is a whopping 88 pages of legal text. Becoming compliant takes a lot more than just adding a couple of checkboxes to your forms! But worry not, we’ve got it covered. With help from Triniti, one of the top business and IT law firms in Europe, we’ve put together this plugin and written a thorough guide for making WordPress sites compliant with minimal effort.

You don’t need to drown your customers in pointless acceptance checkboxes if you know what you’re doing!


Using The GDPR Framework does NOT guarantee compliance to GDPR. This plugin gives you general information and tools, but is NOT meant to serve as complete compliance package. Compliance to GDPR is risk-based ongoing process that involves your whole business. Codelight is not eligible for any claim or action based on any information or functionality provided by this plugin.

Well deserved 5 star

Really good stuff. Thanks so much for your efforts and once we have worked through it it will be better and fit for the purpose

Extremely useful !

Extremely useful plugin. If you need to make your wordpress site GDPR compliant give this plugin a try it has everything to get you started and more.

Great start

Best GDPR plug-in by far, got me started with compliance, Would be nice if this could also include cookie consent pop-up: a cookie list and also a delete option for the user (added to the tools shortcode). It would save using another plug-in with totally different styling!! 🙂

Comprehensive with Privacy Policy Verbiage

This plugin checks all the boxes for me personally. It allows users to download their data, or delete their data. It also requires them to agree to your terms and privacy policy when they register. And, most GDPR plugins don’t include Privacy Policy verbiage. This one does. You should review the verbiage and make sure it works for your site, as well as, add anything that the policy is missing. But, it at least gives you the bulk of what you need in a Privacy Policy. Also, the plugin author is very responsive if you need to submit a support ticket. Which I feel bad doing because this is a free plugin. The author doesn’t have to provide support. But, this author is nice enough to do so.

GDPR Framework

I have literally tried every GDPR plugin available in the repository at this time and found that GDPR Framework is the only one that fulfills the requirements in an easy to use/easy to understand format without strings attached. A set up wizard walks you through the process and extensive documentation provides additional instructions. Though cookie control is not yet available, the authors’ explanation and promise to implement if necessary is reasonable. I also appreciate the authors’ view on upcoming wordpress and woocommerce implementation and their commitment to remain compatible. Support and response time is stellar! You will not have to wait long for a reply and if you come across a bug, they fix it. You don’t have to worry about playing Plugin Rouelette with this one!
