    Hello,
    I found that the plugin establishs a cdn connection. That is why I want to know how to work with it concerning the new regualtions of gdpr. Which kind of data are stored on your servers, for which purpose and how long?
    Many thanks in advance

  • Hello,
    in the meantime I found that the plugin establishes two cdn connections:
    – cdn.printfriendlycom
    – ds-4047.kdxcdn.com
    (both disappeared when I dectivated the plugin).

    The second cdn has been already supposed to be malware as you can read in this article:

    Please clarify.

    Many thanks & best regards

    😮 We have no malware. It’s simply a CDN that stores things like the button graphics, javascript for the lightbox, etc..

    Read the full article (and commments) where the other corrects the false accusation that PrintFriendly is malware. Furthermore, the author is using our service 🙂

    “What seems to have happened, is that kxcdn.com simply seems to be a Content Delivery Network – hence the CDN in the domain name, and that at some point, a real Trojan was making use of this content delivery network. ”

    The second CDNWe are working on on GDPR documentation.

    But I’ll tell you the basics… We do not store, sell, or share any end-user data. We do not require accounts to use PrintFriendly.

    If you use the free version, the page content is sent to our server along with some general info like device type and IP address. We do not store, save, sell this info.

    If you purchase Pro, we require a name, email, and billing information. The billing information is shared with the payment processor (Stripe).

    If you use the free version, the page content is sent to our server along with some general info like device type and IP address.

    This is a problem because the IP address is part of the personal data. To legally use your plugin in the EU means that you either have to stop collecting this kind of data or offer a contract to the people running the site
