This open source plugin will assist you making your website GDPR compliant by making personal data accessible to the owner of the data. Visitors (owners) don’t need user accounts to access their data. Everything works through a unique link and e-mails.

WP-GDPR integrates with some of the most well-known plugins through add-ons. This will make the data stored by the plugins available for the visitor to manage it.
List of all add-ons: https://wp-gdpr.eu/add-ons/.
Integration with:
Gravity Forms
Contact Form DB 7
Condolence Manager
Events Manager

How WP-GDPR Core works

The plugin creates a page where users can request access to their personal data, stored on your website. You can find this page in the list of WordPress pages.
In the backend you’ll get an overview of the requests users send and you can see which plugins collect personal data and need a ‘ask for approval’ checkbox.

Users who ask to view their personal data will get an email with a unique url on which they can view, update and download their comments and ask for a removal per comment.
When they ask for a removal, the admin has the ability to delete the comment through the wp-gdpr backend.
All emails will be sent automatically.

We made our code available on Github and are welcoming Pull Request!



We have 5 e-mail templates and they are all editable through filters or can be replaced in the theme.

1. Option one

In order to replace the email template, you can copy the template from our plugin ( wp-gdpr-core/view/email ) and move it to your theme. Place it in under theme-name/wp-gdpr-core/email/samefilename.php

From now on you can style your new placed templates as you like.

2. Option two ( Email filters )

Here are the filters for the email that is send to requestor and the dpo.

  • ‘wp_gdpr_request_email’: $email_template, $email, $url (email to requester)
  • ‘wp_gdpr_request_email_dpo’: $email_template, $email, $url (email to dpo)

Here are the filters for the email that is send to the admin for a delete request.

  • ‘wp_gdpr_admin_new_delete_request’: $email_template, $requested_email (email to admin)

Here are the filters for the email that is send to the requester and the dpo for a delete confirmation.

  • ‘wp_gdpr_delete_confirmation’: $email_template, $date_of_request, $processed_data (email to requester)
  • ‘wp_gdpr_delete_confirmation_dpo’: $email_template, $date_of_request, $processed_data (email to dpo)

Request page filters

We have added 3 filters to change the text on the request page.

  1. ‘Original text’ => ‘filter_name’
  2. ‘Submit’ => ‘wp-gdpr-submit-text’
  3. ‘Warning’ => ‘wp-gdpr-warning-text’
  4. ‘This link will become deprecated after 48 hours.’ => ‘wp-gdpr-link-text’

Privacy Centre page filters

We have added filters to change the text on the navigation of the privacy centre page.

  1. ‘Original text’ => ‘filter_name’
  2. ‘WordPress Comments’ => ‘wp_gdpr_wp_comments’
  3. ‘Condolence Manager’ => ‘wp_gdpr_wp_condolance_manager’
  4. ‘Contact Form DB7’ => ‘wp_gdpr_wp_cfdb7’
  5. ‘Flamingo’ => ‘wp_gdpr_wp_flamingo’
  6. ‘Mailchimp’ => ‘wp_gdpr_wp_mailchimp’
  7. ‘Gravity Forms’ => ‘wp_gdpr_wp_grafity_form’
  8. ‘WooCommerce’ => ‘wp_gdpr_wp_woocommerce’
  9. ‘Events Manager’ => ‘wp_gdpr_wp_eventmanager_form’

Pretty disappointed with this plugin. The core is not stabilized, and despite that many other integrations are in progress (MailChimp, ...)... On the idea it is sure the best current solution but there is work to obtain something of great quality (translations, conflicts of libraries JS, ...). Good luck to the developers.

The plugin does not work, creates broken links, is not wpml compatible at all. We bought 2 extensions - much work for something that does not work! I sent two support requests - never heard back. Firstly, even their support portal wouldnt work properly. This plugin is scam. Even one star is too much.

I couldn't install the WP GDPR add-on - stupid me 😉 - but WP GDPR helped me install it and I could even swapp add-ons because I ordered the wong one. So sweet! Thanks!

I purchased the gravity addition to this plugin. After install, I began to understand how it functioned and realized it does little to nothing. See others discussions here on wp for evidence. Style out of the box is minimal and does not use your current theme. There is no header, body nor footer to even come close to your site. It appears you will have to code that yourself. Im not down with that on a paid plugin. Also, it didnt work. At all. I requested a refund and was encouraged to fix it with support. Im too busy with working plugins to waste a bunch of time getting this to work. That should have been managed before putting it on the market. I wont say this plugin is horrible, but its not ready for purchase for sure.

The very best thing is that they have the chat option so you cant talk with the support for various questions. If i recommend the plugin? Of course. Now i have only the free one but definettely will buy and use the addons for me and my clients.
