Is Posterno GDPR compliant?

The 25th of May 2018, new EU privacy rules have come into effect called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you are an EU based business or your users are from the EU you will need to ensure that your site is compliant with the new regulations.

For more information regarding GDPR please see:

WordPress 4.9.6 has been released with new tools that help website owners comply with the new regulations.

Please note that using Posterno does NOT guarantee compliance to GDPR. Posterno gives you general information and tools, but is NOT meant to serve as complete compliance package. As the owner of your website, it is your responsibility to ensure that your site is compliant with the regulations. Please always contact an attorney for accurate information, we are not responsible for your website GDPR compliance and we can’t be held accountable for any legal issues.

Asking for consent:

When a privacy page is created and set up under "Settings -> Privacy" of your WordPress dashboard, Posterno will automatically add a checkbox to the registration form asking the user for consent. 

Right of the user to access and delete his data:

Posterno provides forms for your members where they can request a copy of their data or request cancellation of their data through the dashboard page.

Account cancellation:

Other than the ability for an administrator to delete a user's account, Posterno allows members to delete their own account from the front-end through the dashboard page.
