GDPR Frequently Asked Questions

The new Euro­pean Union’s law GDPR (Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion) is designed to improve your vis­i­tors’ pri­va­cy right.  Below are some of the ques­tions that you may have about GDPR and our prod­ucts.

What tools do you offer to help me comply with GDPR?

Our themes and plu­g­ins do not col­lect any data from your vis­i­tors and this func­tion­al­i­ty is usu­al­ly pro­vid­ed by Word­Press itself or by 3rd par­ty plu­g­ins.

In Word­Press 4.9.6, sev­er­al tools were intro­duced to help sites meet the require­ments of the new Euro­pean Union’s laws. You can read more about this update here.

Do your themes or plugins track any personal data of my visitors?

No. The themes and plu­g­ins do not col­lect any per­son­al data from your vis­i­tors.

What data do you collect using the Pixelgrade Care plugin?

Pix­el­grade Care plu­g­in is an in-house sys­tem that helps you man­age your licens­es and get sup­port. It only col­lects non-sen­si­tive diag­nos­tic data and usage infor­ma­tion about your site, to allow us to pro­vide bet­ter assis­tance when you reach us through our sup­port sys­tem. It doesn’t col­lect any data about your vis­i­tors.

Does Google Fonts is GDPR compliant?

The Google fonts API col­lects a very lim­it­ed set of infor­ma­tion and uses it only for serv­ing the font to your site. You can read more about the data Google col­lects, stores, and uses in con­nec­tion with Google fonts here: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq.

As an alter­na­tive, if you want to load fonts local­ly, you can do it man­u­al­ly by down­load­ing the fonts and apply them using our Fonto plu­g­in.
