Is my theme GDPR compliant?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union (EU) law with the goal to provide EU residents control over their personal data and change the data privacy approach of organizations across the world.

Is my theme GDPR compliant?

Yes!

None of our WordPress themes or plugins collect any kind of personal data, like email, name or IP addresses.


What if I’m using a lot of plugins?
It’s very likely that you have several plugins installed on your website, so just because our themes are compliant with the new regulation it doesn’t mean that your website is automatically also compliant.

We recommend you to check carefully all the plugins installed on your website and if any of them track or collect personal information from your visitors, make sure to cover all these details in your Privacy Policy page and/or collect consent from users when needed.

If you are not sure about a specific plugin and the information it collects, we recommend you to consult with the plugin author or check the documentation if available. Many popular plugins have also added GDPR-related options recently, so make also sure that you have updated everything before asking for support.

 

Contact Form Plugins

Depending on the plugin you’re using to create a Contact Form on your website, different actions may be needed to make it GDPR compliant.

For example, if the information submitted by users is stored on your website, then you must get explicit consentfrom them regarding this thing.

Jetpack’s Contact Form is a popular solution that we recommend to our customers when they want to create a Contact Form.

The good part about it is that you can make it GDPR compliant just by adding a required consent checkbox with clear explanation that their submitted data is being collected and stored.

The same technique can be applied to different plugins that you’re using to create forms where you collect personal information from your users.

Google Fonts

Google Fonts are a vital part of our themes. Without them it would be hard to give a modern look to our themes as it gives us access to a dozen of fonts for free.

Google Fonts API collects only a very limited set of information from the websites where they are used and this information is used only for serving the font to your site. You can read more about the data Google collects, stores, and uses in connection with Google Fonts here.
