Data443 is a Data Security and Compliance company traded on the OTCMarkets as LDSR. We have been providing leading GDPR compliance products such as ClassiDocs, Blockchain privacy, and enterprise cloud eDiscovery tools.

The GDPR regulation is a large and complex law. Each member country is to ratify it into its own legilsation and language. This makes it cumbersome to manage – but rest asssured – we have a full Site Owners Guide to help you learn and understand some of your requirements.

This product gives a simple and elegant interface to handle Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs). In a few clicks, you can:


☑ Enable DSAR on one page – allow even those without an account to automatically view, export and delete their personal data;
☑ Configure the plugin to delete or anonymize personal data automatically or send a notification and allow admins to do it manually;
☑ Track, manage and withdraw consent;
☑ Generate a GDPR-compatible Privacy Policy template for your site;
☑ Use a helpful installation wizard to get you started quickly;
☑ Report on related data items within your WordPress installation;
☑ Significantly reduce your staff time efforts dealing with DSARs;
☑ Enable your larger organization to summarize and consolidate DSAR work;
☑ Report to management on DSAR status, volume and data requirements;
☑ We provide this fully documented;
☑ We are developer-friendly. Everything can be extended, every feature and template can be overridden.
☑ Cookie solution
☑ Integration with ClassiDocs
☑ Integration with Woocommerce Version 3.4.0 or later.
☑ Integration with Easy Digital Download Version 2.6 or later.
☑ Integration with Email Subscribers & Newsletters.

Perguntas frequentes

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.

I've tested various GDPR plugins, and the GDPR Framework was definitely the best in my opinion. You've got a privacy policy template generated for you with a setup wizard, a cookies notice popup (which you can customize from the admin side), a page to manage users data, both on front and back end, plus more options and a lot of information on their website, and all of this for FREE. Thanks a lot for the contribution!

GDPR compliance is a complicated matter. Definitely not something you want to wing by yourself. And definitely not something you want to ignore. The obvious solution is a plugin that guides you through the process of making your site compliant. This plugin is the easiest and most comprehensive attempt that I have found so far. It has a wizard that walks you through the setup and lots of options you can configure afterward. It even builds a page where users can download and delete their personal data. It's written by developers for developers, so you can customize just about everything. In today's world, you'd expect to pay a hefty annual subscription for something like this. But the developers are providing it for free. All they're asking is a five-star review, and I'm happy to give it to them. Thanks guys!

I haven't fully tested this plug-in, but so far so good and covers many GDPR related issues. The GDPR guide on the developers website is great too. If there was also a terms & conditions generator this would be an almost all-in-one solution.
