The EU’s new data privacy regulations are fast approaching and if you own a website, this could affect you.
In brief, Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will enforce stricter regulations to data collection that impacts any EU citizen, regardless of where you and your website is based. These new regulations take effect on May 25, 2018.
This new regulation could affect the contact or info forms users fill out on your page. To comply with the GDPR, we’ve added an option in our Builder Contact addon. The new option will allow you to display a consent checkbox to your viewers with the text “I consent to my submitted data being collected and stored”, or something to that effect, anytime they fill out a contact form. The checkbox will be a required field that the viewer must select in order to submit the contact form.
In order to take advantage of this new feature, please update your Builder Contact addon to the latest version!
