LGPD Brazil and WordPress

Get compliant today in the European Union, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil & South Africa with the only Privacy Suite for WordPress that offers a fully-featured plugin for Worldwide Compliance.

The “Marco Civil” and the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD)

In Complianz 5.4 we will add full support for the Civil Rights Framework for the Internet (the “Marco Civil”) and the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD), which came into force in 2020.

The Cookiebanner in Complianz Premium automatically recognizes Brazilian visitors and will ask for their consent if the WordPress website is going to set non-functional cookies. For non-intrusive statistics (such as Google Analytics configured in a privacy-friendly way) it is not necessary to ask for consent.

Cookie policy in Brazil

In the Brazilian cookie policy we made sure that you mention all the relevant privacy rights Brazilians have:

The privacy statement has been updated in order to make it possible that you can not only use the legal grounds used in the EU and UK, but also the extra possibilities allowed by Brasilian law:
  • It is necessary to carry out studies by a research body, ensuring, whenever possible, the anonymization of personal data.
  • It is necessary for the regular exercise of rights in judicial, administrative, or arbitration proceedings.
  • It is necessary for the protection of health, exclusively, in a procedure performed by health professionals, health services, or health authorities.
  • It is necessary for credit protection

Other documents.

We also made some changes to our other documents, such as the Data Protection Agreement, and the Privacy Statement for Children. Questions specific to Brazil are labeled with the Brazilian flag.
