How do I make my Contact form using Chronoforms v5 compliant with GDPR?
Thank you,
GreyHead
Hi vtjoanne,
That is up to you to decide - we don't know any more about GDPR than you do. At a minimum you need to have a checkbox saying that the user agrees with your terms and conditions.

Does your form component offer the option to NOT save data to database? Do you know if the Joomla contact form stores data to the database?
Thank you.

Hi vtjoanne,
ChronoForms gives you control over what happens to the form data. You decide if you want to save it or not.
Sorry, but I don't know about the Joomla contact form.

Please let me know where in the form itself or the component that I can set the data to not be saved to database.
Thank you.

Hi vtjoanne,
The data is not saved unless you enable the Data Save in the Simple form Wizard or add a Save Data action in the Advanced form Wizard.

The data was being saved. This was set to "Yes". Is this where it should be set to "No"?

Hi vtjoanne,
Yes, I guess so . . .

hmmm. Not sure why you cannot give me a definite answer. This is your forms component correct?
GreyHead
Hi vtjoanne,
It's not my component but Max's (Admin in the forums here).
Enabled = Yes - the action is enabled and will be run.
Enabled = No - the action is disabled and will not be run.

Hi Bob, thanks for your confirmation.
On another matter, would you let me know how I can move the check box so it's on a line of it's own? No matter where I place it it's always next to the captcha on the same line, I'd like the captcha and the consent to be on separate lines.

Hi Joanne,
ChronoForms will normally put them one after the other - is there something in the CSS on the page that is changing that?

Hi! Very informative, thanks for the info guys!​
Joanne, to do what you ask, you have to select "Label Position : Top" when editing the checkbox.
There is another question we must know about this.
Is the email sent via a secure layer or it is not encrypted? I m looking but I can't find anything and I have to clear it out in our Privacy terms.
EDIT: I found the according option for encrypting the email sent and I found this FAQ info.
I guess I have to install the Crypt_GPG on my server?
If the website is in SSL, isn't anything sent from the form already encrypted? Or I have to have the script also installed?
Thank you!
GreyHead
Hi jdran,
SSL encrypts the information sent between your server and the user's browser - see here. It does not affect emails sent or data stored.
By default ChronoForms does not encrypt emails, or data saved either.
