Everone working with WordPress has heard from WooCommerce. Many of us probably build at least one website with it. According to Builf With, 42% of all ecommerce websites have WooCommerce as its engine.
When you place an order in WooCommerce, some important but personal data is required.
You have to store some of the data for some years as stated in laws. Other parts of the data are optional and need to be manageable according to GDPR.
As you can see, there are many things to keep in mind when handling personal data in combination with GDPR.
From today on, we will be working on an add-on to help you make your WooCommerce GDPR compliant.
On March 28th, 2018 we launched the WP-GDPR WooCommerce add-on.
It’s available on this website: https://wp-gdpr.eu/add-ons/woocommerce-add-on/
After releasing our first add-on (Gravity Forms integration) for the WP-GDPR core plugin it’s time to expand integrations to other plugins in the WordPress plugins directory.
One of the most used plugins is Contact Form 7. This plugin doesn’t store any data that’s send through the forms but CFDB7 hooks into Contact Form 7 to store that data.
Since this plugin is commonly used, we started to develop an add-on ( WP GDPR CFDB7 add-on) to make all features from the WP GDPR core available for Contact Form 7 entries.
We expect this add-on to be released this month.
You probably have noticed the many updates we released in the past week.
We are happy to announce the first add-on to the WP-GDPR core plugin.
When you use Gravity Forms in your WordPress website, all entries are stored in the database. According to the GDPR a visitor must be able to manage his/her personal data. With this add-on we add the Gravity Forms entries to the personal data overview.
When you request to delete an entry, according to the GDPR, the website admin can handle this analogue to the workflow of the WP-GDPR core plugin.
We released a first version of the WP-GDPR-core plugin through the WordPress Plugins directory.
Don’t hesitate to download and install the plugin.
We’re looking forward to your feedback! (and reviews of course!)
If you have any question or remark on the WP-GDPR plugin, please put it on the support forum
We plan to add some extra features and updates to the interface soon.
Since 25th of May is there soon, we’ll try to keep up the pace and will release on a regular basis.
