By now you should have heard about GDPR, the European data protection regulation that will was brought into force on May 25 this year. Although it is an EU law, you will be required to comply with GDPR as long as you are engaged in storing or processing personal data of EU citizens, even if you are not an EU citizen.
Obtaining Clear Consent
Obtaining clear and unambiguous consent in advance of collecting personal data is now considered essential in terms of protecting privacy rights.
Contact Forms provides the
acceptance form-tag type to represent acceptance checkboxes that are dedicated to confirming the submitter’s consent for a specific condition.
acceptance form-tag can include the
default:on option that makes checkbox selection by default, using this option isn’t recommended because any consent that has been obtained by default isn’t considered adequate in current data protection standards.
When the data subject is a child, you may be required to obtain additional consent from a parent.
