The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25. The GDPR requires companies and site owners to be transparent about how they collect, use, and share personal data. It also gives individuals more access and choice when it comes to how their own personal data is collected, used, and shared.
It’s important to understand that while the GDPR is a European regulation, its requirements apply to all sites and online businesses that collect, store, and process personal data about EU residents no matter where the business is located.
You can learn more about the GDPR from the European Commission’s Data Protection page.

As soon as we receive the new privacy features contained in the latest WordPress update (4.9.6), we will implement and activate accordingly. (This might even take place automatically, though we are not clear on this at the moment.)
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
