AVG plugins for WordPress that help you with your privacy policy

There are many AVG plugins for WordPress that help you with your privacy policy. We tested a number of WordPress plugins that have been specially developed for the new privacy law. The following is a (non-exhaustive list) of plugins, some of which may have been superseded by WordPress version 4.9.6. This version has standard very good privacy features in WordPress has processed.

Broadly speaking, for the AVG we can distinguish between two types of websites:

  1. Websites without user accounts
  2. Websites with user accounts

AVG plugins for WordPress websites without user accounts

A cookie banner where visitors to your website can indicate which cookies they accept.

  • EU Cookie Law - banner with the option to link to your privacy page
  • Cookiebot - banner with many options and clear manual

Request permission for data processing forms

  • WP GDPR Compliance - adds permission boxes to Contactform 7, Woocommerc, WordPress Comments, whether you are logged in or not.

AVG plugins for WordPress websites with user accounts

Of course, a cookie banner and ask for permission are also applicable here, but you can also add additional functions.

  • Delete me - Users can delete all data related to their account themselves
  • GDPR - When logging in, users of your website must grant permission and agree to the privacy statement of your website. If the user does not agree, they will not be registered. It is also not possible to log in. This plugin also includes tools for complaints and data removal.
  • GDPR Compliance - Displays data for logged in users. That's all.

Various AVG related information that is useful for WordPress users

Categorize cookies and decide whether they are strictly necessary for the operation of your website. Or is it for analytics, tracking or advertising? In your privacy statement you should explain the different categories and how they are applied.

Do you automatically comply with the new privacy law after installing one or more of these AVG plugins?
The short answer is no. Plug-ins can get you started, but you'll also have to take care of a few things yourself. This message can therefore not be seen as legal advice.

    Our customer uses Google Ads for retargeting. If someone visits his website, he will be placed in the retargeting target group list. I haven't been able to find any code or plugin that activates scripts for this after acceptance. All plugins turn the Google scripts off NA action visitor but then it's already too late. By default the script is on and the visitor is already in the target group list of Google Ads.

    How do I ensure that visitors are only included in the target group list AFTER proactive acceptance of tracking?

      Hi, Maurice,

      This is so specific and for me 1,2,3 not easy to answer. Maybe you need customization, or someone who knows more about these things than I do. Maybe you can sign up for the Dutch Slackkanaal, in case you're not in it yet. Maybe someone with the right expertise?
