Data Privacy

The Data Privacy section helps you manage user content and comply with any data privacy regulations you may be subject to. It’s broke into three sections: Settings, Email Templates and Manage User Data.

To edit these settings, navigate to the Members menu and the Data Privacy sub-menu in WishList Member.

In the Settings tab, you can set the following options:

Require Terms of Service Agreement on Registration Form. Enabling this option will insert a Terms of Service checkbox to your registration forms. When a member registers, they will be required to accept your Terms of Service; otherwise, they will not be able to register.Click the “Configure” button to edit the Terms of Service and the error message a member sees if they do not accept the Terms of Service:

Display Consent Checkbox For Additional Marketing on Registration Form. If enabled, this option adds a checkbox to allow new members to give consent to receive additional marketing from you. The effect of enabling this option is when a member does NOT mark this checkbox, they will NOT, by default, be added to any autoresponder integrations and you will NOT be able to send them broadcast emails from inside WishList Member. These options CAN be edited inside the “Configure” button:

In the Manage User Data tab, you’ll find links to the WordPress Data Privacy functionality.

Important Note

The links here will take you to the WordPress data privacy functions for exporting and erasing personal data. These pages are 100% managed by WordPress and not WishList Member. We’ve placed these links here purely for you convenience.

Export Personal Data. This link takes to you to the WordPress screen where you can manage member requests to download their data.

Erase Personal Data. This link takes to you to the WordPress screen where you can manage member requests to delete their data.
