In this video I'm going to walk you through installing and setting up the WP GDPR Compliance plugin.

Please note that I do not have a legal background so you should contact a law firm for rock solid legal advice.

There are a few important steps here so please watch the video all the way through.

Hi Marion,
I am having trouble with installing GDPR. I did install the plugin but for some reason, it did not install the data access request. Do I have to add it as a new plugin or I did something wrong when I installed it? I do have a privacy policy and a cookie notice on my website.

Thanks Marion. Have you looked at the new WP 4.9.6 Privacy and Maintenance release yet that Kyle recently mentioned? He said this will be a much preferred approach to achieving GDPR compliance.

Thank you very much, Marion.
Many here have posted articles about this GDPR but they were lengthy or incomplete, very unuseful and all confused me.
Now, thanks to your clear training Ive been able to set this matter quickly and safely for all my sites..
There was no need for anything else.
Thanks again.

Hi Marion, Thank you so much for this update. I just got back from 3 weeks vacation (Philippines) and I know I missed a lot. This was actually the first thing I did since my return. Do you already have a tutorial video GDPR compliant for Super Socializer plugin?

Again thanks & God bless!

Hey Marion
I added my GDPR request form to my side bar, is this satisfactory or do I need a separate page as well as it on my side bar widget?
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
Is the sidebar widget viewable/accessible on every page? I think it needs to be in the menu too (or instead).

Another plugin? Is all this necessary? I thought all we had to do was put in the updated privacy policy. Guess there is more to this than I realize.
Reply
onmyownterms Premium
Yes, the plug-in is necessary as it allows you to remove people's private information if they make that request of you.
Reply
Judy-B Premium
Got in all done and thanks to Marion's excellent video, I did it easily. Hope all is good now. :) Thank you!

MarionBlack Premium
It's a complex legislation, Judy. Thanks to Loes, Mary and others I've been able to put it all together.
Reply
Judy-B Premium
I certainly thank you for all this, Marion. It's all over my head. I did get it all put in so hopefully, it's good to go now. :)

Saibo Premium
Thank you Marion!

I have a question: after this, is it still necessary to add the data acces request as a widget in the sidebar or in the footer? Or just add it to the menu?
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
I've got mine in the menu under the Privacy Policy, not as a widget.

Great video though, I just wish the law was more clear on what they want.
Reply
mtrew2015 Premium
There are ways around it and even plugins that stop this... just have to be sure you're not placing the cookie and then asking for permission... I could be wrong though... I think Wordpress Core needs to develop that for us so it's not a plugin.
Reply
mtrew2015 Premium
The issue I've been seeing is you have to get permission to install the google analytics cookie. What happens though is when you first hit a site, if you don't have a script or a way to block that cookie prior to the consent... it may be in violation.. I'm not a laywer or nor am I a GDPR expert, I even think my site falls outside the scope of GDPR, but from what I've heard... that's the big issue..

hi Marion,
i didn't know about the quick edit check box. That's why I couldn't find the page in my menus. I had created a custom link instead. Once I checked it, I could see the page in the menus box.
Thanks again Marion.;0)
