We recommend that all of our users and customers of the premium version switch to legal web cloud, as we are no longer adding any new features and functions to WP GDPR tools.


As a user of WP GDPR you have two simple tasks:

  • Selection of the services used
  • Filling of a few input fields

WP GDPR does everything else:

  • Creation of the cookie popup
  • Creation of the cookie notice
  • Control of services
  • Control of embeddings
  • Generation of the data protection information
  • Creation of the imprint


Our top priority is compliance with the laws and the regulations of courts and of data protection authorities. We do not offer options that are not legally or legally highly controversial.

Why so strict? Because our users have neither the desire nor the budget to lead complex procedures through all appeals, just to find out whether any cool feature is legally permissible or not.


All legal texts were created by the law firm Marketingrecht.eu, which specializes in IT, internet and data protection law.


We do not use community translations. All translations have been translated by sworn and certified interpreters. Official certified by WPML. Works also with Polylang and WPGlobus.

Important note: This plugin only supports you in fulfilling the guidelines for compliance with the GDPR. Installation is not enough – correct configuration of this plugin by a website administrator is required to achieve conformity. A 100% conformity only through the plugin cannot be guaranteed, as this depends on several other aspects. If you use our plugin and enable integrations with your custom snippets (Google Analytics, FB Pixel, Criteo,…), 3rd party scripts get loaded or remote ressources get called if/after your visitors opt-in for them. An valid statement in the privacy policy (to fulfill GDPR requirements) gets added automatically by this plugin. In some features automatically generated emails get sent to you or your customers. In these emails Google Fonts are used.

Die Idee, nicht nur einen Cookiebanner anzubieten, sondern auch gleich die maßgeschneiderte aus den Einstellungen des Banners generierte Datenschutzerklärung dazu, war ein tolles Konzept! Ich war von Anfang an dabei und habe die Entwickler immer tatkräftig unterstützt und über 15 Pro Lizenzen im Einsatz. Zum Dank Kappen Sie die Pro Version um ihren Nachfolger, die 10x so teure “privacy-cloud” zu verkaufen. Dringende Empfehlung: Finger weg von diesem unseriösen Anbieter! Empfehlung: Nutzt weder dieses Plugin, denn es bremst nebenbei bemerkt die Performance aus und kauft auf keinen Fall die Cloud Version, die dasselbe macht.Außerdem: Alles Geschmacksache, aber meiner Meinung nach sind die Cookiebanner von legalweb.io die hässlichsten, die man auf dem Markt bekommen kann.

Hatte das Plugin bei etlichen Kundenwebsites im Einsatz und dafür gerne die Pro-Version gebucht. Nun gibts keine Pro-Version mehr, sondern nur noch eine “privacy-cloud” um den dreifachen Preis pro Jahr. Also lass ich meine Lizenzen auslaufen und stell die Kunden sukzessive auf Complianz um – das kann wenigstens auch Multisite und TCF2.0

Den Support hier kann man echt vergessen, null Reaktion nach ueber eine Woche. Das Plugin ist ok solange es funktioniert, allerdings hat es wiederholt durch Updates meine komplette Seite lahm gelegt und dazu kam noch der redirect Hack vor kurzem. Wenn ihr koennt sucht euch eine Alternative!

WP DSGVO Tools is a great plugin to meet the data protection requirements of the EU. Furthermore, they have great support. Keep it up. On behalf of the fire brigade of the city of Remagen
