NB: These are generic instructions on ways you can start becoming GDPR-compliant. This is not a comprehensive guide to your legal obligations, and may not be applicable for your particular situation. You should fully research the rules and regulations to ensure that you are fulfilling your legal obligations.
To do this open up your dashboard (http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin) and look for the Settings section. Under this you will see a new heading called Privacy where you can generate your page.
Now it’s as simple as using the ‘Create New Page’ button and wordpress will generate a default template based on what it can automatically assess about your website’s requirements.
You will need to edit and review this page to ensure that it’s accurate and covers everything your need for your particular website. The ‘Check out our guide’ link here will give you some help. However for now let’s go ahead and publish the page as is so we can add it to our website.
Now that you have a privacy page, you can add it to your navigation menu so that users can easily find it.
In your Dashboard go to the Appearance section and choose Menus.
Select your navigation menu to edit and search for the privacy page you just created. Check the box and use the ‘Add to Menu’ button for it to be placed at the bottom of your current menu links.
The next steps include reviewing the plugins and software that you’re using on your website and updating this basic template to include all the required information. A cookie consent is also required by law. These steps will be covered in future blog posts (which you can subscribe to using the button below).
