GDPR compliance for your webinars

Since WP WebinarSystem is collecting data from your webinar attendees like the name and email (and other information you are gathering with custom fields) of your webinar visitors, we have added GDPR compliance elements to the plugin.

For each webinar you can choose if you need to activate the registration opt-in or not.

There are two switches. Activate the switch which relates to your webinar. If it's a free webinar, then activate the switch for 'non-paid webinars'. The opt-in checkbox will be added on the registration form on the registration page. If it's a paid webinar, then activate the 'Paid webinar' switch. Since the website visitor will need to buy a ticket first, the opt-in checkbox will be added during the checkout process in WooCommerce. If you already have a GDPR opt-in/checkbox during your WooCommerce checkout process, then you are already good to go with paid webinars and you can leave all the checkboxes deactivated.

Also, your webinar attendees will be able (if you activate this option) to unsubscribe from the webinar themselves using the link to manage their profile within the webinar reminder emails. On the email options on the webinar settings page, you can activate the unsubscribe links within the reminder emails by switching the "Activate profile and unsubscribe link" switch to "on". The profile page will be automatically created on your website. If you don't want to use the default page, then you can select another page from your website which will be used for attendees to check their profile data.

When an attendee clicks on "unsubscribe" then he/she will be unsubscribed from that particular webinar immedeatly. When the attendee clicks on "manage profile" then he/she will see their profile page first.

All the webinars they are  registered for are listed here, and the attendee can decide from which webinar to unsubscribe and remove themselves from your website completely. We fully automated the unsubscribe process so you don't have to do anything manually when someone uses their 'right to be forgotten'.
