Help, the identification emails are not sent!

The GDPR Framework uses the exact same mechanism for sending emails as the rest of your WordPress site. Please test if your site sends out emails at all using the Forgot Password form, for example.
If you get the forgot password email but not the identification email, please make a post in the support forums.

Help, the link in the identification email doesn’t work!

Are you using SendGrid or another email delivery service? This might corrupt the link in the email.
In case you’re using SendGrid, make sure to turn off “click tracking”. Otherwise, please post in the support forum!

Help, the Privacy Tools page acts weirdly or always displays the “link expired” message!

Check if you’re using any caching plugins. If yes, then make sure the Privacy Tools page is excluded.
Also check if a server side cache is enabled by your web host.

How is this plugin different from the tools in WordPress v4.9.6?

WordPress 4.9.6 provides tools to allow administrators to manually handle GDPR requests. However, the GDPR framework allows visitors to automatically download and export data to reduce administrative work load.
In addition to that, we provide tools to manage and track custom consent types and also a privacy policy generator.
We are also planning to add other important privacy-related features missing from WordPress core over time.

My experience attempting to evaluate this plugin: Once the plugin is activated, the Deactivate link disappears, as well as the checkbox that allows plugins to be selected, and uninstalled… OK, this sucks… let’s try finishing the setup completely and then removing it. The installation process forces you to create an account in order to show the “Privacy Safe Seal”… great. After registering on data443 twice: at and at their atlassian site, still no luck. I hope their support team responds promptly. The setup process is overly complicated when your site does not store any Personal Information as it forces you to setup forms and processes to manage users’ deletion requests. IMHO this plugin should not be made available until the plugin follows the established uninstall processes. This is the last time I try anything from, they have horrible business practices.

Excellent plugin, does exactly what it says on the tin. The dev. team are also responsive, solving an issue I had raised.

Excellent. Wish a few more plugins would integrate with it (like Paid Memberships Pro), but it’s very useful.
