If you develop, design, or maintain a website then you’ve probably heard of the GDPR privacy requirements that affect websites globally as of May 25, 2018. In this episode of Divi Chat, we’re discussing GDPR compliance, what it means for us and our businesses, and hopefully help you get a better understanding of what it is and how to implement GDPR best practices into your Divi website.

In this episode we also discuss a few things that are confusing when it comes to GDPR. For example, it doesn’t matter if you are in Europe or not. If you have visitors from Europe, then you must make sure your website is compatible.

Additionally, there’s a lot of confusion around eCommerce vs simple static websites and whether or not these rules apply if you’re not selling products. We also discuss this during the episode. The compliance isn’t just for websites that sell products though. Even if you have a simple contact form on your website (as most websites do), then you are responsible for adhering to the policies of GDPR.

However, eCommerce websites are even more at risk than simple websites with a contact form. For example, Tim sells Divi plugins and Divi Modules and therefore collects customer’s information at checkout. Because of this, additional steps must be taken by Tim in order to stay compliant. Through the research of setting this up for Divi Life, Tim created a handy tutorial for Divi users on how to make your Divi website compliant with GDPR. We definitely recommend taking a look at this after watching the episode 🙂

** Note that we are not lawyers and are not giving legal advice, we’re all in the same boat navigating these new waters together and are learning about this ourselves 😉

At the time of posting the new GDPR compliance requirements are not yet in effect, so there is still much confusion and vagueness on proper handling for website managers outside the EU. Resources listed are for research purposes only, and are in no particular order.
