In brief, Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will enforce stricter regulations to data collection that impacts any EU citizen, regardless of where you and your website is based. These new regulations take effect on May 25, 2018.
This new regulation could affect the contact or info forms users fill out on your page. To comply with the GDPR and if you use Themify WordPress Framework, Themify added an option in Builder Contact addon that will allow you to display a consent checkbox to your viewers with the text “I consent to my submitted data being collected and stored”, or something to that effect, anytime they fill out a contact form. The checkbox will be a required field that the viewer must select in order to submit the contact form.
