Hi there! We just launched and we’re still ironing out the details in both the guide and the plugin. If you spot any mistakes or anything particularly confusing, please email indrek@codelight.eu and complain. We’re super grateful for any feedback. Thank you!

In this guide, we will walk you through GDPR step by step and give you specific, detailed instructions on making your WordPress site compliant.

For each requirement, we well first explain the legal background in human-readable language. Then, we will show you how to implement the related requirements on your website using the WordPress GDPR Framework, a free open-source plugin we built exactly for this purpose. Finally, we will briefly go over the obligations that GDPR puts on your business in general.

We’ve also put together a knowledge base to answer more specific questions and discuss various annoying corner cases regarding GDPR and WordPress, WooCommerce, Easy Digital Downloads, Gravity Forms and other plugins.

If you have a simple website, it’s entirely possible that you can take care of the compliance process by yourself and might not need to involve a developer or lawyer. However, if you have an e-commerce or membership site, we recommend getting in touch with a legal professional to help you with the nooks and crannies of GDPR. We can help with that – get in touch!
