As a user of WP GDPR you have two simple tasks:

  • Selection of the services used
  • Filling of a few input fields

WP GDPR does everything else:

  • Creation of the cookie popup
  • Creation of the cookie notice
  • Control of services
  • Control of embeddings
  • Generation of the data protection information
  • Creation of the imprint

Also available from around mid-April 2020:

  • Terms & Conditions
  • Seal of approval


Our top priority is compliance with the laws and the regulations of courts and of data protection authorities. We do not offer options that are not legally or legally highly controversial.

Why so strict? Because our users have neither the desire nor the budget to lead complex procedures through all appeals, just to find out whether any cool feature is legally permissible or not.

But don’t worry: there are never any end features, just scroll down, down, down … 🙂


All legal texts were created by the law firm Marketingrecht.eu, which specializes in IT, internet and data protection law.


We do not use community translations. All translations have been translated by sworn and certified interpreters. Official certified by WPML. Works also with Polylang and WPGlobus.

Important note: This plugin only supports you in fulfilling the guidelines for compliance with the GDPR. Installation is not enough – correct configuration of this plugin by a website administrator is required to achieve conformity. A 100% conformity only through the plugin cannot be guaranteed, as this depends on several other aspects. If you use our plugin and enable integrations with your custom snippets (Google Analytics, FB Pixel, Criteo,…), 3rd party scripts get loaded or remote ressources get called if/after your visitors opt-in for them. An valid statement in the privacy policy (to fulfill GDPR requirements) gets added automatically by this plugin. In some features automatically generated emails get sent to you or your customers. In these emails Google Fonts are used.


  • The Cookie Notice
  • The Cookie Popup
  • Common Settings
  • Settings for Cookie Popup and Notice
  • Styling settings of the embedding placeholder

Hatte das Plugin bei etlichen Kundenwebsites im Einsatz und dafür gerne die Pro-Version gebucht. Nun gibts keine Pro-Version mehr, sondern nur noch eine "privacy-cloud" um den dreifachen Preis pro Jahr. Also lass ich meine Lizenzen auslaufen und stell die Kunden sukzessive auf Complianz um - das kann wenigstens auch Multisite und TCF2.0

Den Support hier kann man echt vergessen, null Reaktion nach ueber eine Woche. Das Plugin ist ok solange es funktioniert, allerdings hat es wiederholt durch Updates meine komplette Seite lahm gelegt und dazu kam noch der redirect Hack vor kurzem. Wenn ihr koennt sucht euch eine Alternative!
