With the introduction of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), WordPress now makes it easier to add a Privacy Policy page to your website.

Whilst the GDPR is a European regulation, its requirements applies to all sites no matter where they’re located, and its purpose is to help inform EU residents how a website collects, stores and processes their personal data.

The Privacy settings enables you to select an existing Privacy Policy page, if you already have one. If you don’t already have a Privacy Policy page, you can click the Create New Page button and WordPress will create a new page for you and also populate it with some suggested text. Prior to publishing this Privacy Policy page, please ensure you read it thoroughly to ensure that the content accurately reflects your website and policies. This pre-populated content also includes several blank sections which are recommended to be filled in.

Your selected Privacy Policy page will be shown on your Login and Registration pages. It’s also recommended that you add a link to your Privacy Policy on every page of your website. If you have a footer section on your site, this is a great place to add it.
