Opt In Compliance

There is a new plugin available in the shop and I think that it’s functionality is important enough for me to share it with you here.

The plugin is used in conjunction with Bloom and forces those who are signing up for your email list to confirm that they agree to your Privacy Policy and Terms BEFORE they can get on the list.

Those of you in Europe, particularly those in Germany, this is highly topical.  We just posted on GDPR Compliance and what you need to know.

In May, the new regulation on data protection GDPR comes into force. From this point on, every website operator who addresses users in Europe with his website (who doesn’t do this) is obliged to embed a link to the Privacy Policy in the form and a checkbox which the user has to click on explicitly.

Bloom GDPR Overlay Plugin offers you a very simple solution. When you install it, only one setting is really important: “the link to your privacy policy.” The rest is

completely optional.

If you are in the States or anywhere outside The Euro Zone, you may feel like this isn’t really anything you have to worry about; however it is always better to err on the side of caution and safety because laws are changing all the time, and it may sound grand, but your traffic is most likely global, so who knows what jurisdiction you could fall under.

The new plugin, Bloom – GDPR Overlay will solve your problem and you can use it on unlimited websites for only $7.

Learn more about the plugin, it’s functionality and how to use it and let me know your thoughts.

    What happens if they don’t check the box? I want to add language that says click if they’re in the EU so I can direct them to a different delivery email.

    I just bought the plugin but my site is in Spanish so I’m looking like crazy to translate the message to spanish. Do you now if this plugin works with WPML?
    Thank you!
