I have looked at the existing posts that discuss EE and the upcoming GDPR, and saw your comment from March 2018:
“The development team is aware of GDPR and will be adding new privacy features/options that can be used for GDPR compliance.”
The GDPR-specific tools are not available at this time, and I do not have a timeframe for when each of those will be rolled out. I can update this topic when these become available.
With regards to publishing EE’s GPDR compliance credentials, those would not actually be relevant to your website because EE is a distributed plugin. Using the Event Espresso plugin in and of itself cannot provide legal compliance. While a plugin can certainly assist in automating the steps on a compliance journey, or allow you to develop a workflow to solve a situation (see example above), the EE plugin cannot protect a site administrator from mistakes or lack of compliance, nor can the plugin protect site users from incorrect or incomplete legal compliance on the part of the web site.
In short, plugins like Event Espresso can include helpful tools along the legal compliance journey, but are not presented as an end-to-end solution, nor should they give users a false sense of security.
The support post ‘Consent check boxes for GDPR’ is closed to new replies.
