Support » Plugin: Flickr Justified Gallery » GDPR compliant?

  • Hi there @miromannino,

    As many others, I’m currently going through my site to ensure it’s fully GDPR compliant (perhaps I’m a bit late to the party, but better late than never!).

    In that regard, I was wondering whether this plugin is compliant or not?

    I was wondering if it would make sense to add a little text to plugin that will automatically appear in the Privacy Policy guide found at ../wp-admin/tools.php?wp-privacy-policy-guide=1?

    Hope to hear from you and many thanks for this great plugin!

  • The plugin authors are not storing any personal data so in what way would they need to be GDPR compliant?

    You are person potentially storing any personal information so the responsibility falls upon you. You need to take into account what personal information you are storing, how it was collected, what permissions you have, the security you have in place around that information and how you are using it. The GDPR website will assist you in understanding GDPR compliance.

    Hello skafte!

    by itself this plugin doesn’t collect any data, so it doesn’t need any GDPR agreement. In a way we can say it’s 100% GDPR compliant as it is a <img src="my-profile-picture.jpg" /> piece of HTML.

    You might want to address in your website things like the contact form and comment form where you actually are collecting user’s information.

    Hi there @daved2424,

    Thanks for responding to this so quickly!

    I understand that the ultimate responsibility lies upon me and that the plugin authour doesn’t need to be GDPR compliant in this regard.

    My hope was that the authour of the plugin would consider adding a text to the plugin with a basic explanation of what Flickr’s GDPR policy is, when using their API, so that it’s easy for users of the plugin to use that standard text in their own privacy policy. Hope that makes sense… Many plugins have started to do this and their standard suggested texts are found on this page: ../wp-admin/tools.php?wp-privacy-policy-guide=1. I think that would be really useful, even if the text just explained that the plugin itself, and the author of it, don’t collect any data, but that Flickr does – and ideally there would then be a basic text of what information Flickr then collects.

    These guys provide the texts externally, but it serves as a good example of what the text could look like: https://smashballoon.com/gdpr-and-our-plugins/ – look under ‘GDPR Privacy Notice Snippets’.

    What do you think?

    Hi @miromannino – thanks for responding as well. Our posts must have crossed paths in the air as I submitted a response to @daved2424 at the same time as you responded to me 🙂 Anyway, what do you think of my latest suggestion?
