Support » Plugin: GDPR » Excellent plugin and support

  • This plugin is the only GDPR at present that deals with all aspects of the legislation and allows the wordpress website developer to configure the website cookies based upon what the user decides through the popup consent and privacy tools.

    Not being a coder the only aspect I do not have working yet is setting the ability to decide which of the non-essential cookies can be allowed or not allowed based on preferences set by the user – however it is possible to make the user accept all cookies or leave the website by use of the privacy policy wording which I have done for now but will look at how to customise the cookies to be on or off based on preference.

    You can allow the user to request their data and the plugin records consent – the plugin logs an audit trail of all consents given so that you know if you change your policy and if they have also consented to that change. I am also using the plugin to get the user to consent to the terms of use of the website and cookies policy as well as the privacy policy – so it covers more then just GDPR; if a user is in breach of your terms of service then you have a record that shows when they accepted your terms of service!

    When updating your privacy policy the user is then served the policy to approve again on the next visit, which is excellent and therefore fully fulfils the requirement to keep users informed of changes to the policy.

    Having followed the support forum and github for the last month or so I can say with confidence that the support is excellent and the plugin is being constantly developed based on user feedback with new issues being addressed quickly – given the thousands of plugins that exist on wordpress there is always the possibility of a conflict or further integration or customisation required and the developers are always keen to help.

    Now that WP 4.9.6 is here with its GDPR tools included it is clear that this plugin is still a requirement – I wondered if it would just bridge a gap while WP caught up but its clear that every wordpress implementation going forward will need this plugin to ensure a neat solution to the ongoing privacy requirements and with the changes in 2019 it will be here to stay.

    Well done!

    Hi @harpersmith

    I’m speechless right now.
    You just brightened my day with this review.

    One thing I would like to point out is that if you check the audit log, you can see the timestamp of the last time consent was given.

    In the next release, I will also add the actual policy to the audit log so you can be sure of exactly what was accepted. I’m just worried that some policies might be too big, so I’m trying to figure this out.

    For now, you can look into the audit log and the timestamp should give you a clue.

    Again, thank you very much for this review. Just wow.

    no thanks needed – you did all the work!

    I have updated the review in light of the audit log but unfortunately cant up my star rating to 6!
