Have you generated a website using Wix and need to meet GDPR consent requirements?
Well, you’re in the right place. In this guide, we’ll take a look at GDPR consent proof requirements and how to add iubenda’s Consent Solution to your Wix site.
Consent records are specifically required under the GDPR. Keeping a complete and thorough record of consent is required and is an essential part of privacy compliance. The records of proof are managed by you, the Data Controller. As a result, the GDPR requires you to keep “proofs” or records of consent that contain specific details that might prove that the consent received is genuine and therefore valid under the GDPR. Consent must be explicit, freely provided, and verifiable under the GDPR. You can read up more on iubenda’s Consent Solution here.
These records should include a way of identifying the user, proof of consent, record of the consenting action, and the legal documents available to the user at the time of consent, among other things.
The following information should be recorded:
You can read about the full requirements here.
iubenda’s consent solution automatically records and manages GDPR & LGPD consent and privacy preferences for each of your users. You can read up more on iubenda’s Consent Solution here.
Please note: the following method is only possible on pro/business accounts.
Once you’ve generated your Consent Solution with iubenda we are going to install your Consent Solution on a basic Wix contact form following these four simple steps:
First, you need to create a contact form page on Wix. From the left sidebar choose Menu & Pages → Site Menu → Add Page
Next, you need to click on Contact and select the first option ‘Basic’.
Click “Publish” in the top right corner and then select “View Site”.
Your Wix website will open in a new browser now you can access the Contact page you just created.
Please note: to retrieve this data we will use the ‘Inspect’ function from chrome, Firefox Safari, opera, and internet explorer. For some of these search engines such as Safari, you may have to activate the developer tool in preferences. To do so, open the Safari browser, click on Safari -> Preferences > Advanced. Then, check the Show Develop menu in the menu bar checkbox. The Inspect Element feature is now enabled.
Depending on what browser you use the inspect function will look slightly different however, the method for retrieving the data remains the same. For example, if you are using Google chrome the inspect function will appear on the right-hand side of your screen as shown in the image below. If you are using Firefox the inspect function will appear at the bottom of your webpage.
We need to retrieve the name and id attributes of the form you just created, follow the guide below.
Right Click anywhere on your form then select “Inspect”
Now, search for the
<form> tag and note down of the ID attribute.
In this example, the ID is: comp-kVjmxjf5
Next, we need to search for the ‘submit’ or ‘send’ button and take note of the class attribute. You can easily do this by hovering over the button → right-click → inspect.
In the example, the class attribute is: _1fbEI
After that, look for the ‘First name’ field and note down the name attribute. You can easily do this by clicking on the “First Name” field → right-click → inspect.
The name attribute in this example is: first-name
We want to do the same again with the ‘Last name’ field and note down the name attribute. To do this, right-click on the ‘Last name’ field and select “inspect”.
The name attribute in this example is: last-name
Repeat the above for the “Email” field. To do this, right-click on the ‘Email field and select “inspect”.
The name attribute in this example is: email
We can ignore any “message” or “subject” field as it is not needed for the creation of our consent.
We need to copy the Consent Solution from your iubenda dashboard. Click on [Your website] > Consent Solution > Embed
Now we need to add this to the
<head> tag. Here we are going to follow Wix’s official procedure.
Go to Settings in your site’s dashboard → Advanced Section → Add custom code.
Click on + Add Custom Code in the top right corner and complete the form as explained below.
In this step, you’ll need to customize the code below. Replace our example attributes (highlighted in red in the image below) with your attributes from step 1 above.
legal_notices, which are automated if you sync your iubenda legal documents with the Consent Solution(here, we use the standard identifiers
cookie_policy and term).
Lastly, we need to add this Submit script at the end of the
<body> tag. To do this, go to Settings in your site’s dashboard → Advanced Section → Add custom code.
Then, click on Add Custom Code in the “Body End” section.
After that, paste our Submit function into the text box ‘paste the code snippet here:’ and then we can name it cons_submit_script.
Click on Apply! Congratulations, you’ve integrated your iubenda consent solution on Wix!
