The GDPR is a new data protection law in the EU. It came into force towards the end of May 2018. The aim is to provide citizens of the EU with greater control over their personal data and contribute towards the change of attitude of worldwide organisations towards data privacy. NIU is on hand to lend its expertise in assisting you in making sure your website is GDPR compliant.
Since its inception, GDPR compliance has been on everyone’s radar and we are now supplying a new module that will help you get started on the right foot or better cope with ongoing changes. Our Advanced GDPR Module will provide you with the ability to give your users the control they require to manage what and how you track them. In turn, your brand will benefit from improved user experience and transparency.
What does this Advanced GDPR Module do?
Firstly, it contains EU-optimised settings and supported regions. Governments around the world are working on increasingly stricter privacy legislation. This Advanced GDPR Module initiates auditing and matching with ever-changing privacy legislation around the EU countries. Updates are frequently added on an ongoing basis.
The Advanced GDPR Module also contains a fine-grained Consent Management tool that seeks acceptance for Cookies that require consent for the visitor’s region. This can be either opt-in, opt-in (including statistics), opt-out, or with no banner at all. Cookies and scripts are blocked or fired, based on the required consent level.
A highly customisable cookie banner with templates for several regions are specifically designed to adapt to privacy laws. To prevent the overload of information, we have designed the banners to create a user experience that is simple and fast, whilst presenting the user with an unambiguous and informative banner.
While we pride ourselves on standard integrations for the most popular services and modules, we also provide the possibility to block and enable one’s own scripts and modules as desired.
This module is fully integrated with WordPress’ locale management and fully translated into over 39 locales. This means that the back-end menus will very likely be translated into a given native language. Also, the cookie banner and legal documents are translated to the same native language following the same basis.
