BuddyBoss understands the importance of user privacy.

This page provides information relating to GDPR and how BuddyBoss is working to protect user privacy and help our customers in protecting their users’ privacy.

Plugins

On May 17 2018, Automattic (The company behind WordPress) released a new version of WordPress, to help site owners comply with the GDPR that takes effect on May 24 2018.  

As part of the release, a couple features were added in relation to “Right to Erasure” and “Right to data portability”, allowing site admins to export a ZIP file containing a user’s personal data and erase a user’s personal data.

We have now pushed new updates to all our plugins to allow plugins to integrate with these features, as suggested by Automattic, in the following guides for plugin authors.

We have also released a free plugin that integrates BuddyPress with these new WordPress features, allowing a user to request and receive an export of their BuddyPress data, and for an admin to erase a specific user's BuddyPress data. Download Plugin
