As of the May 25th 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation, known as the GDPR, has come into force. This is a big update to privacy laws for European residents. This document outlines some of the GDPR factors you need to take into account when using a Pro Theme Design theme.
Please note that this is not legal advice. This document should be used as guidance only and, if required, you should seek help from a legal professional to ensure your website is GDPR compliant.
Pro Theme Design themes do not store or process data about website visitors. Our themes are designed purely to address the design of your website.
To use Jetpack you must connect your site with wordpress.com; this requires an account on their site. The purpose of this connection is so that services like website stats will work - however this will mean wordpress.com is storing your users data.
To disable this transfer of data you can either disable the features you're not using from the Jetpack admin. Or you can install the Jetpack Dev Mode plugin. This will disable the features that need the wordpress.com connection - whilst allowing you to use the other functionality unimpeded.
We'd love to get some feedback to help us create better themes.
