Wordfence Is GDPR Compliant
As of September 27, 2021, the revised EU Standard Contractual Clauses issued by the EU Commission on June 4, 2021 (in effect as of June 27, 2021) apply to all Defiant, Inc. (dba Wordfence) agreements. You may review the revised Wordfence Terms of Service at https://www.wordfence.com/
Today the team at Defiant completed the required steps to make our organization and services GDPR compliant.
Your starting point for Wordfence and GDPR should be the following page: Wordfence and GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation page.
On the above page you can find everything you need to ensure that you remain GDPR compliant while enjoying the security benefits of Wordfence. This includes the EU Standard Contractual Clauses. We also include a list of the cookies the Wordfence plugin sets when installed on a site and what each cookie does to improve security.
The Wordfence user interface will be disabled until you review and agree to our new terms. The prompt will look like this:
We have optimized this process so that, if you have many sites running Wordfence Premium, once you agree on one site, you won’t have to repeatedly agree to the same terms across all your other sites.
I’d like to congratulate our team on completion of this project. It required hundreds of hours of work which included product updates, website changes, the creation of new agreements and documentation and a thorough data and security audit.
While we can not provide GDPR advice to other companies, if you have any questions about GDPR as it relates to Wordfence, you are most welcome to post them in the comments below.
