As a user of WP GDPR you have two simple tasks:

  • Selection of the services used
  • Filling of a few input fields

WP GDPR does everything else:

  • Creation of the cookie popup
  • Creation of the cookie notice
  • Control of services
  • Control of embeddings
  • Generation of the data protection information
  • Creation of the imprint

Also available from around mid-April 2020:

  • Terms & Conditions
  • Seal of approval


Our top priority is compliance with the laws and the regulations of courts and of data protection authorities. We do not offer options that are not legally or legally highly controversial.

Why so strict? Because our users have neither the desire nor the budget to lead complex procedures through all appeals, just to find out whether any cool feature is legally permissible or not.

But don’t worry: there are never any end features, just scroll down, down, down … 🙂


All legal texts were created by the law firm Marketingrecht.eu, which specializes in IT, internet and data protection law.


We do not use community translations. All translations have been translated by sworn and certified interpreters. Official certified by WPML. Works also with Polylang and WPGlobus.

A 100% conformity only through the plugin cannot be guaranteed, as this depends on several other aspects.

  • Settings for Cookie Popup and Notice
  • Styling settings of the embedding placeholder
  • Statistic integrations
  • Targeting integrations
  • Settings about the page basics

  • Settings for page operator which are used for privacy policy and imprint

WP DSGVO Tools is a great plugin to meet the data protection requirements of the EU. Furthermore, they have great support. Keep it up. On behalf of the fire brigade of the city of Remagen

in der FAQ steht folgendes: "Im Gegenzug erhält die Free Version zwei neue Zusatzfunktionen:...In Kürze Zugriff auf Datenschutztools für Embeddings wie Youtube, Google Maps, Open Street Map, Facebook, Instagram, etc.". Aktuell sind diese nur in der Premiumversion aktivierbar. Habe zwar "Blockieren von dynamisch generierten Inhalten aktivieren" aktiviert, aber meine OpenStreetMap wird weiterhin ohne Einwilligung angezeigt. Das habe ich so dem Support geschickt mit der Frage ob diese Einstellung demnächst in der freien Variante verfügbar sein wird. Aber seit 5 Wochen keine Antwort erhalten. Ich habe dafür wenig Verständnis, dass man ein Ticketsystem einführt und sich dann nicht darum kümmert. Ich scheine ja da nicht der Einzige zu sein, der keine Antwort erhält. Sehr schade.

Ich wüsste nicht, wie ich die aktuellen Anforderungen in Sachen DSGVO ohne das DSGVO-Plugin von legalweb umsetzen könnte. Vielen Dank für dieses geniale Tool!

Das Plugin mag für 95% aller Anwendungsfälle gut und ausreichend sein - ich kann nur aus meiner Sicht bewerten und berichten. Wir möchten matomo als optional klassifizieren. Das geht nicht, da es lt. legalweb nicht notwendig ist. Die Aussage stelle ich nicht in Frage, aber ich MUSS es als abwählbar machen können, da es unser Datenschutz vorschreibt - egal wie die rechtliche Situation ist. Das ist im Plugin bis dato nicht möglich. Was mich allerdings am meisten ärgert ist, dass ich die Premium-Variante gezahlt habe und der Support sich nicht meldet. Weder im Forum, noch im Ticket-System. Seit 21 Tagen höre ich im Ticketsystem nichts mehr, trotz Nachfrage.
