If you need to check your forms are compliant with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, the best way to ensure GDPR compliance for your specific site is always to consult legal counsel.

What is The GDPR?

The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is a set of data collection regulations in the EU (effective as of May 25, 2018). Requirements under GDPR include requiring explicit consent before collecting or storing user data, as well as allowing the user to request access to or deletion of that data.

If you set GDPR to Yes, there will be a required checkbox at your contact forms as well as Request Add Locations Form. The Privacy Policy link will not appear unless you enter the full url of your Privacy Policy page url (i.e https://yoursite.com/privacy)

Important: Remember to enter the full url including http:// or https:// at the beginning.
