How do I make my website GDPR Compliant?
Making your website GDPR-compliant is easy with Strikingly. You can activate the GDPR Compliance option by following these steps:
1. In your site editor, navigate to Settings > Advanced > Legal.
2. Check the "General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance" box.
Note: You can also set your own consent message by clicking “Edit Consent Message.” When editing the consent message, you can edit the name of the link, or even add your own <a href="..."> to link to any external URL.
3. Check the "Show European Union Cookie Notification" box, and click "Save." That's it!
After activating GDPR compliance, all Strikingly web forms on your website will then have checkboxes for agreeing to your consent message.
The Cookie Notification activates a small dialog on your live site, where the visitor can Accept or Reject cookies and tracking scripts:
Note: If you've activated this Cookie Notification, the visitor may opt out of this tracking, so your pageview counts may not be complete!
Note: Any request received from a new GDPR-compliant web form will show in the Form Responses screen if a visitor has consented to your website.
