On 25th May 2018, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) enacted by the EU will come into effect.

DigiTalking has already written an article about WordPress, this article cover topics about being GDPR compliant if you have a Joomla based website.

Some usual ways in which a standard Joomla site (and third party extensions) might collect user data:

– user registrations
– comments
– contact form entries
– analytics and traffic log solutions
– any other logging tools
– security tools

The developers team behind Joomla is working to include privacy and data protection features in the Joomla core, the 3.9 minor version release add some privacy tools and the 3.10 version (the last of the 3.x series before the release of Joomla 4.0) will include other integrations, read the Joomla 3.9 & Joomla 3.10 – The General Data Protection Regulation Oriented Release article by SmartAddons.
