On the 25th May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect.  As such, we are updating our privacy policy and terms of service to ensure we continue to comply with the highest possible standards whilst continuing to provide the same level of service.

Our Privacy Policy contains mentions of the few instances where personally-identifiable information is required. Typically this will include an email address in order to log in to a Wed Design Cafe installed instance or social network username in order to manage your account.

Overall, we aim for privacy by default: if data collection is not integral to the way our product works, then we won’t collect it. This approach has felt very much in line with the spirit of GDPR, and we’re fortunate that a lot of these data collection practices have been in place at Web Design Cafe for some time. As such, you may see a few banners or forms requesting consent for us to collect personally-identifiable information for tracking or other purposes. We don’t deem this information necessary to provide Web Design Cafe’s service to you, and we choose not to engage in activities and strategies that make this data relevant.

At any time, you may request your information to be exported and sent to you for review, and we promptly honor any requests by you to have your information deleted and forgotten.

Here is the progress on GDPR compliance:
