I appreciate that this is a free plugin, but it would be good to have a bit more transparency about your use of a referral link.
Also by using a referral link for iubenda you might be running afoul of the plugin rules
“Advertising within the WordPress dashboard should be avoided, as it is generally ineffective. Users normally only visit settings pages when they’re trying to solve a problem. Making it harder to use a plugin does not generally encourage a good review, and we recommend limiting any ads placed therein. Remember: tracking referrals via those ads is not permitted (see guideline 7) and most third-party systems do not permit back-end advertisements. Abusing the guidelines of an advertising system will result in developers being reported upstream.”
The base url iubenda.refr.cc is from a service called referral candy so it’s quite clear that this is a referral. I’m not sure though how strict they on affiliate links.
I don’t know if there are any GDPR specific issues with using plain referral links but given their services I’d hope the iubenda have produced guidance on correct usage here.
