Support » Plugin: Media Library Assistant » GDPR Compliance of MLA

  • Resolved dejudicibus


    Please, confirm that MLA is compliant to GDPR. My understanding is that you set two cookies:

    setcookie( 'wp-settings-' . $user_id, $cookie, time() + YEAR_IN_SECONDS, SITECOOKIEPATH, null, $secure );
    setcookie( 'wp-settings-time-' . $user_id, $current, $current + YEAR_IN_SECONDS, SITECOOKIEPATH, null, $secure );

    What they are for?

    Thanks for your question and for including the source code you are inquiring about.

    The cookie in question is created by WordPress to pass default values for the “ATTACHMENT DISPLAY SETTINGS” that appear in the lower-right portion of the Media Manager Modal (Popup) Window when, for example, the user selects an image from the “Add Media” action on a post or page. The settings are “Alignment”, “Link To” and “Size”.

    MLA allows you to change the defaults in the “Attachment Display Settings” section of the Settings/Media Library Assistant General tab. The code you referenced above passes these settings to the user’s browser in place of the WordPress defaults.

    All of this happens only for a user logged in to the WordPress admin area of the site; none of this is used in the site’s “front end”. The cookie is not used in any other way that I know of.

    I am confident that this is fully GDPR compliant. I am marking this topic resolved, but please update it if you have any problems or further questions regarding the above explanation. Thanks for your interest in the plugin.
