DJ-Classifieds ver. 3.7.3 introduced additional form controls which makes the component compliant with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In this article, we would like to demonstrate how to configure those controls.

In DJ-Classifieds there are five types of forms which collect personal data and which might oblige you to do enable required checkbox fields along with the information why you need to collect user data and whether the user accepts your website's privacy policy:

  • Add Advert
  • User registration
  • Ask seller
  • Abuse report
  • Payment details

You can enable a new checkbox with the Policy Privacy field in DJ-Classifieds options (security tab).

and second checkbox with Data protection agreement.

When enabling field "Data protection agreement (GDPR)" you can provide also your own field description or leave it blank and base on label COM_DJCLASSIFIEDS_GDPR_AGREEMENT_LABEL which can be translated via overrides.

When options are enabled along with Terms and Conditions, in advert creation form you will have 3 checkboxes available:

  • "Terms and Conditions"
  • "Privacy Policy"
  • "Data protection agreement"

three checkboxes

New Fields are added also to:

  • Registration page

  • Ask Seller form

  • Abuse report

  • Payment for points, adverts and promotions.
