WordPress – Privacy and Maintenance Release

WordPress 4.9.6 was released on 17.05.2018. This is a privacy and maintenance release and it is recommended that you install the new version to take advantage of the new privacy features. The DSGVO will be applied from May 25th. Among other things, this regulation ensures that it is necessary to provide transparent information about which personal data is collected for what purpose and possibly shared with which third parties. If necessary, the consent of the user must be obtained before processing the data, if the data processing is not permitted by other provisions of the GDPR. In addition, the user gets a right to anonymise or delete personal data or to get an export of his data. WordPress 4.9.6 now introduces some tools and features to make it easier for website operators to operate a DSGVO compliant site.
