The GDPR Framework By Data443


This plugin is a service of

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


Please disable (or otherwise remove) caching capabilities from the plugin pages – as these are very dynamic and based on use interaction.

Plugin support:

The GDPR Framework currently works with the following plugins
☑ Contact Form 7 & Contact Form Flamingo
☑ Gravity Forms – Download the GDPR add-on
☑ Formidable Forms – Download the GDPR add-on


Download and Activation

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. ‘The GDPR Framework’ will be managed at Tool>Privacy tab.
  4. The page ‚Privacy Tools‘ will be created after Setup Wizard. This page displays the form where visitors can submit their request.

Setup Guide

Steps to add consent with contact form 7 are as follow:
1. First, need to create consent „Tool > Consent > Add consent type“ .
2. Then note down the slug for example the slug is „contact_acceptance“
3. Then go to the contact form 7 click on Acceptance button a pop-up will get open.
4. Add the name of that acceptance same as that of slug i.e „contact_acceptance“.
5. Insert the tag then save the form then it will be embedded with contact form 7.


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.


Great plugin

Great plugin, easy to use and configure. Staff very responsive to support.

Privacy Tools alone are worth paying for….but you get them here for free.

The ability to remove a user’s data from a website is priceless. This is the only plugin I have seen which offers this option. That is why I use it.
One suggestion is to make a youtube video or make it clearer in the instructions how to add the policy page to the menu. Other plugins do it automatically so I spent 15 minutes trying to figure out why there was no privacy policy on my site after I finished the setup…then I added a footer menu to include the page and voila…presto chango it appeared …a little late but all there.

Fantastic (works!)

I spent hours going through various plugins and for whatever reason, they either didn’t work or looked awful.

This one is the business and done the business!

Thank you,
