The Privacy Suite for WordPress

CCPA, CalOppa and COPPA Requirements for 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.

We will explain how Complianz handles the legal requirements coming from CCPA, CalOppa, and COPPA.

Website owners must provide a visible “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link or button on their website or mobile app.

Complianz (Free) creates a user-friendly, customizable interface to your DNSMPI page.  This link or button can be shown on a banner and/or in a menu. 

Update May 2022: In versions 6.2 and 6.3 Complianz is implementing the new CPRA (California) and new obligations from five other states in the US. To anticipate this change the default name of the DNSMPI page has been changed to “Opt-out preferences”.  Some people however still prefer the old DNSMPI name. In the Wizard under “Documents,” you can rename it to whatever you’d like.  If you’re targeting other states as well, you can leave it as is.

The right to know what personal information is collected, used, shared, or sold.

You can use your privacy statement or generate a privacy statement (explicitly written for Californian visitors of your website) with Complianz (Premium) to fulfill these requirements. In the Complianz wizard, you will need to select the regions your visitors usually are coming from: the United States of America, with California as an extra subregion for specific cookie management. 

Inform your visitors if you have sold any personal data in the last 12 months,  and give them the possibility to opt-out of the future sale of personal information.

The DNSMPI page in Complianz (Free) gives the visitor the required information. In addition to that, the DNSMPI page contains a data request form for the opt-out of the future sale of personal information. The Complianz plugin (Free) has a menu item to collect and handle these requests.

Show a list of the categories of personal information you have disclosed in the preceding 12 months for a business purpose.

The privacy statement generated with Complianz (Premium) creates and shows this list to the visitors. It also reminds you of your legal obligation to keep it up to date after 12 months.

Website owners must let visitors know how they handle Do Not Track signals.

The privacy statement generated with Complianz (Premium) mentions if the website does or does not respond and supports the Do Not Track (DNT) header request field. If your visitor
turns on DNT in the browser,  and if you have decided to respond to the Do Not Track (DNT) header request,  the Complianz plugin will automatically try to block any tracking of the browsing behavior.

Children under the age of 16 must provide opt-in consent, with a parent or guardian consenting for children under 13.

Based on your answers to our wizard, the US region is implemented with COPPA, a federal privacy law protecting children online. If needed, Complianz (Premium) generates a specific COPPA compliant Privacy statement for children.  

Inform your visitors if you offer financial incentives for the collection of personal information, the sale of personal information, or the
deletion of personal information.

If needed, the privacy statement generated with Complianz (Premium) makes it possible to hyperlink to the material terms of a financial incentive program.

The right to object against the further use of non-functional cookies.

Complianz (Free) makes it possible for your website visitors to either opt-out on marketing, tracking, and other non-functional cookies, as well as give consent again when needed. For example, when playing YouTube videos or using social sharing widgets.
