GDPR for Joomla! is an essential tool that helps to have your website compliant with the EU GDPR law
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fully enforceable in the European Union involving even countries outside the European Union that handle personal data of EU citizens. After the deadline of May 25, 2018 all organisations are expected to be compliant with EU GDPR and 2020 is the year of GDPR enforcement.


Moreover the Joomla! GDPR component is compliant even with the German EUGH Cookie Law, European ECJ, CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) as of January 1, 2020 and with Federal Law of the Russian Federation of July 27, 2006 No. 152-FZ and of Ukraine "On Personal Data".

This means that there are a new set of rules to consider when dealing with personal data of users. The GDPR component aims to extend the Joomla! core with a set of extra features, currently missing, in order to have Joomla! compliant with the EU GDPR law.

What about the new Joomla! 3.9 Privacy Tool Suite? The GDPR component integrates with it and it's the perfect fit to extend the core features provided by Joomla! 3.9 and the most required extension to fully cover all GDPR requirements!

Main features of GDPR are:
•GDPR Cookie consent: the standard cookie banner is no longer enough for EU GDPR, now you need a more effective solution to really block local cookies and third-party cookies before the consent is given even supporting revocable consent and modal block of the website

•Cookie classification: it's possible to build a full classification of cookies, the component supports up to 4 categories that are customizable based on cookies used on your website

Different strictness levels: it's possible to switch between different levels of strictness when dealing with cookies, even supporting geolocation to exclude visitors from countries that don't apply the EU GDPR law

Logs of user changes: whenever a change in a user profile occurs, for example if a user changes his personal data, all changes must be tracked and logged. GDPR supports even Joomla! custom fields and the core User Profile plugin. The logs report can be exported in CSV and Excel formats

Logs of consents and account consent registry: the logs of user consents is a global system that allows to keep track of all consents given by users, either logged in or logged out, to every form in which you integrate the privacy policy checkbox. The logs report can be exported in CSV and Excel formats

Logs of cookie consents: the component is able to track even consents given for the cookie usage both by visitors and registered users of your website

Profile deletion: every user must be able to delete his own profile at any moment based on the 'Right to be forgotten' regulation. Moreover GDPR doesn't simply delete the user profile, but it can optionally delete all user generated contents, such as articles, contacts, blogs, etc

Profile export: every user must be able to export his own profile in a machine readable format, GDPR supports CSV and Excel

Fully automatic deletion and export: by default the deletion and export of a user profile is fully managed by the component and self-made by the user so you don't have to worry about manual operations. Optionally you can choose to manage deletion and export manually and receive a request by users

Privacy policy checkbox: every form on your website dealing with personal data must include a mandatory privacy policy checkbox to consent personal data handling. GDPR can integrate with all of them to show the privacy policy checkbox

Consent registry: you can generate and export the registry including consent details given by users that is essential if requested by the Data Protection Commissioner

Record of processing activities: the component is able to manage the record of processing activities and its generation in both Excel and OpenOffice format to be compliant with the EU GDPR

Dynamic checkbox: this feature works as a privacy construction kit in that you can create multiple and custom privacy policies associated to an individual checkbox and place it wherever you need

Website Audit: you can run an audit to quickly identify cookies and external domains used on your website

Data breach notifications: in the case that a data breach occurs, you can mark violated profiles and quickly notify users sending them an informative email

Privacy policy: you can include popup contents or link to your privacy policy

Cookie policy link: you can include popup contents or link to your cookie policy

Multilanguage support: contents can be translated into different languages using the standard Joomla! multilanguage strings

Advanced integration system: GDPR ships with preconfigured integrations with common extensions such as JomSocial, EasySocial, Virtuemart, etc moreover it can be configured to integrate with all extensions that generates standard forms(non-ajax)

Revocable consent: you can allow users to revoke their consent to the privacy policy and be notified whenever this happens to take the correct action

Retroactivity: you can force already registered users to explicitly accept the privacy policy on the first login

Log IP address: it's possible to track even the IP address of each user to uniquely identify users even if simple visitors. The IP address will be included in the logs of user changes, in the consents registry and in the cookie log

Exclusions system: you can choose to exclude certain user groups or certain components from the GDPR requirements

Integration with JRealtime Analytics: GDPR can be integrated with the component JRealtime Analytics by JExtensions Store in order to provide a fully GDPR-compliant solution for stats tracking to replace Google Analytics


Product features:


-GDPR Cookie consent: actually block local, third-party cookies and the user session before the consent is given, even allowing revocable consent and cookie classification

-Delete/Export profile: allow users to delete or export in a machine readable format their profile at any time

-Data breach management: if a data breach occurs you can manage and notify violated users quickly within 72 hours

-Highly customizable: customize the theme, colors, contents and the integration with third party extensions

-Multilanguage: you can translate contents for the cookie toolbar, form controls and email using the Joomla! multilanguage

-Log user changes: log every change in a user profile, track old and new values and generate a CSV/Excel report

-Log users and consents: log every change in a user profile to track old and new values, log given consents to your forms and generate a CSV/Excel report

-Website audit: integrated Site Audit feature to quickly find cookies and domains used

-Logs of cookie consents: the Joomla! GDPR component is able to track even consents given for the cookie usage both by visitors and registered users of your website

-Privacy policy: include the privacy policy checkbox in every form dealing with personal data

-Record of activities: the component is able to manage the record of processing activities and its generation in both Excel and OpenOffice format

-Dynamic checkbox: create custom consents for multiple services offered on your website

-Notifications: get notified when a user deletes his profile, notify users quickly if a problem occurs

-Permissions: take advantage of an advanced management of permissions and exclusions by user group

-Integrations: GDPR is able to integrate with every extension that generates a form thanks to advanced settings
