How to Make Your Forms GDPR Compliant using Pie Forms

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a law by the European Union (EU) requiring explicit consent before collecting or storing user’s data. It also allows the user to request access to or delete their data.

To make your forms GDPR compliant with Pie Forms, you must enable the GDPR from the Global Settings and add the GDPR compliance field in your form to take the user’s consent.

Follow these steps to enable GDPR on your form.

Step 1: Enable GDPR Settings

Go to your WordPress Admin dashboard. Click on Pie Forms > Global Settings and head over to the General Settings Tab.

Enable the Checkbox to use the GDPR related features on your forms.

Save the settings.
