In this video I'm going to walk you through setting up your Privacy Policy page for the GDPR.

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

First back up your website

Then make sure your website is updated to the latest version of WordPress.

Thanks Marion. I had a bit of a glitch when I went to update my menus. Couldn't do it....said "Bad Request". I just ended up deleting the original Privacy Policy and adding the new. The site looks fine now with the new policy in place. I think its a theme problem. I need to update it.

It's important to keep your themes, plugins, and WordPress up to date. Remember to backup first before you update.

Thank you for this training.

A few questions:
1. Under mailing lists. Should I just enter AWeber as my autoresponder or do I need to link to their privacy policy page?
2. Third parties - I'm not really clear what this is. Do I need to list every affiliate site someone might click on on my site?

Thank you for putting in the time to do this training. I appreciate it!
MarionBlack Premium
Yes, add a link to Aweber's privacy policy.

Third parties are anyone else that you share your visitor's information with. For most of us, it's only Google Analytics and our autoresponder service so we don't need that section.

Once again, Marion you created great training on the subject of the new and required GDPR Privacy Policy page that is needed to be updated on all of our websites.

It is always easy to follow your training as you articulate all of your thoughts quite well.

Thank you for taking the time to provide this video tutorial to members!

Hi Marion thanks for posting this training. I've followed your tutorial but the privacy page has disappeared and seems to have been replaced by this Who we are page. Is this correct?
Also do we need the cookies warning that Loes advised on her info earlier on this?
I'm finding this whole thing very confusing.
MarionBlack Premium
Yes, there's a new Privacy Policy Template in Site Content. This is what we should use as a guide to comply with the GDPR.

The Cookie Directive has been around for awhile and it still applies. We need both.

If you have not seen this already then read what Kyle has said on the subject.

Marion I am NOT , however I wish I had her talent. But I can help by answering.
The Who We Are is the new privacy policy.
I agree with you on the confusion. I am sorry I can't answer about the cookies part.
Good luck

Marion, I did a post on this. I found that there are a number of changes that most people should do. Many of us are single people. All the We, ours etc need to be made single ie I, my etc.

Also I noted somewhere that Google Analytics is a third party auroresponder. Well I didnt' add them so did you?

And I left some things in such as the Mailing list. Most of us, if we aren't already, will have these. And Third Party. What I did was include some sentences reflecting the fact that at the moment these aren't used but if they become used the clauses will be amended.

Good points Helen. We each have to make our own decisions as to what we put in our privacy page.
