  • Hi,

    In light of GDPR, does this plugin store personal information in any way and make use of cookies?

    Thanks

  • I would like to second this question.

    Please assist:

    Can you confirm that plugin is GDPR compliant and provide a link to an explanation of how you store details/what makes the plugin GDPR compliant?

    Thanks

    Hi there guys!

    Thanks for sharing the link @tderouindesign!

    I’m still a bit confused though about using CloudFlare in regards to being GDPR compliant myself.

    If you see this (friendly CloudFlare plugin developer), have you considered supplying your users with a suggested text for the standard WordPress Privacy Policy Guide? (found under: ../wp-admin/tools.php?wp-privacy-policy-guide=1) – that would be super helpful and make it so much easier for everyone to use CloudFlare on their WordPress websites without being too worried about doing something wrong and not knowing.

    I’m aware that there’s a good chance that perhaps it’s impossible to write a one-size-fits-all text, but perhaps you can get close or a least give some guidance in the Policy Guide as to what exactly is good to keep in mind when using CloudFlare and writing a Privacy Policy.

    Hope you can help and many thanks!

    Not a direct answer but you may find some useful information there. The general consensus is to contact legal counsel to ensure your privacy policy is accurate but I understand the need to know more from CloudFlare first.

    Let me know if that article is helpful. Thanks!

    Hi there @tderouindesign,

    Thank you very much for your response and for sharing the link with me and everyone else reading this.

    Just like Bill, in the thread you’ve linked to, I am also looking/hoping for a suggested text provided by CloudFlare explaining my obligations to my visitors, as they might be affected through my use of Cloudflare, rather than Cloudflare’s obligations to me.

    Should CloudFlare also see the usefulness in providing its users with such a helpful text, then it would lend itself well to add that text directly to the plugin so that it automatically appears in the Privacy Policy generator/guide.

    But thanks anyway! -I hope to hear from the plugin developers and that they’ll consider my suggestion, or at least offer some concrete advice as to how to best tackle this situation 🙂

    My only other suggestion would be to login to your CF account and go to https://community.cloudflare.com/ to submit the question in their community forum. Perhaps if you have a premium account there are additional support options as well but I am not sure.

    If you find an answer please post it here, thanks!
