GDPR Bundle

Thank you for looking into my GDPR compliance extensions. To save you some time (and 20%), I've created a software bundle containing my GDPR extensions.

  1. Fields - Terms of Service
    • Meets the GDPR requirement for consent tracking.
  2. Profile History
    • Meets the GDPR requirement to notify users of profile field changes.
  3. System - Required Fields
    • Works with Fields - Terms of Service, to require users to consent to new terms.

Detail about the GDPR can be found here:

I'm not going to go into depth for each extension, you can follow the links above to see more information. If you're interested in taking advantage of the discount, return to this page.
