How to make my WIX website GDPR compliant

Wix GDPR

Wix is a platform for website creation. It allows users to create HTML5 websites and mobile sites through the use of online drag and drop tools.

It’s is a very useful tool for those who don’t have big knowledge on web design or the budget to pay someone to do it, in other cases the need for a fast and simple website just to present a project, a person or some product. The templates they offer help saving precious time since you don’t need to design your site, just adjust to your needs and taste. But remember that a good design is key to keep your customers engaged.

If your website is designed with Wix and you still don’t have a GDPR solution, we invite you to try GetComplied, the new standard in compliance. 

 

Attention: This tutorial only works if you have a premium Wix account otherwise you can’t add external codes.

In the info section, you’ll have

  • Company details
  • Domain
  • DPO and project info fields.

Attention: It’s very important that the domain is correct or else it may cause problems loading the GetComplied form on your website, so make sure the domain (ex: www.example.com) is properly added.

In the settings section, you’ll choose:

  • The Languages your website is translated to
  • The default language of your website
  • The URL for your logo (You can find it on your website by clicking on your company logo and select “Copy Image URL”, then paste it in GetComplied)
  • The color in hex format (ex. #57BB82 )
  • And your email to notify you about new cookies on your website.

Let’s create some content to add, like policies and cookies.

1.3 – Create policies and add cookies

Policies

add policies to getcomplied

You need to create some policies and terms to show your customers what they have to agree when giving consent.

If you are not sure how to write strong “Terms and privacy” documents check this sample.

Click on the new policy button, choose a document name, the language you desire to edit (note that when you want multiple languages you have to edit both of them, ex: you want to add French and English, so you chose French and edit in French, then chose English and edit in English) and if it’s required or not (the required refers if it is mandatory for the user to use the website). Once you’ve completed editing your policy click save, publish and close.
