How to add Privacy Policy to Divi Contact Form

In this post I´m going to explain how to add Privacy Policy to Divi Contact Form.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an European Union and United States law (EU) that requires companies and site owners to disclose the information they collect about their visitors and how this information is used (check out the ultimate guide to WordPress and GDPR compliance.)

All websites collect information about their visitors in different ways ( Comments, Contact forms, Google Analytics, Optin Forms, Google Adsense,  ..)

So It´s it is necessary to make clear in Privacy Policy what information you are collecting, why, and how your readers can update, manage, export, and delete their information.

To make your Divi Contact Form GDPR-compliant, simply adding a required consent checkbox with clear explanation should be good enough.
