Support » Plugin: Email Users » Privacy & Control/Access to Email Addresses

  • Resolved timrohrer



    I’m evaluating plugins for being able to send emails to people registered on our site. However, I’m trying to stick with candidates that do not capture email addresses. I want to be able to assure our users that their email addresses will only be available to the site administrator, and not be accessible to anyone else.

    Can you confirm this for me?

  • Looking for the same thing here. To be compliant with GDPR, we can’t be adding email addresses to mailing lists without approval, so we need to make sure this plugin doesn’t capture email addresses anywhere.

    The Email Users plugin doesn’t capture email addresses as part of the plugin functionality. It leverages the WordPress database and does queries against the user to obtain email addresses to send emails to various users. The data which is logged, if logging is enabled, does not contain the user’s email address.

    If a form is specifically set up to define a field as an email address then it would capture whatever the user provides and pass it along to the Google Sheets but the actual data is not stored by the WordPress plugin.

    Thank you @mpwalsh8. That is helpful. I haven’t played with forms yet, and not sure I will.

    You can ignore the second paragraph of my reply, that is related to my Google Forms plugin where I had a similar question. Sorry for the confusion.
