Support » Plugin: Hupso Social Media Share Buttons » GDPR implications

  • Have you given any thought to the GDPR implications of this plugin?

    For example, AFAIK, when a page or post loads that contains this plugin a hit is sent to static.hupso.com (for each instance of the share bar) and a cookie is set (name = __utmah).

    I see no problem doing this if the visitor CLICKS on a share icon. However, to send data to a third-party on page load only i.e. WITHOUT a visitor click, does require explicit consent from the visitor in order to be GDPR compliant.

    I would be interested in your thoughts…
