Product description

On 25.05.2018 the DSGVO / GDPR* came into effect. As a result, website operators have been subject to a number of new obligations to protect the personal data of their visitors. If you want to get them all done right, you will have to accept some restrictions.

One of these restrictions is the integration of images from external hosts, since the website operator has no way to trace what happens to the personal data of his visitors (e.g. IP address) by calling up the image files without a corresponding contract. The consequence of this is either to completely prohibit the integration of externally hosted images or to use the integrated image proxy. The first option is more the sledgehammer method, while the latter carries the risk of copyright infringement. However, even if there is a corresponding contract between you as the operator and the picture host, you do not have the option of placing individual hosts on a "whitelist".

Using the internal file attachment function is often not an optimal solution either, as many projects have too few storage contingents.

We have an answer to all these questions and a solution to all these problems!

Our extension for WoltLab Suite 3 adds a user-configurable whitelist for displaying external images. This can (or must) still prohibit the integration of external images, but it is now up to the visitor of your website whether he wants to display the image files anyway - and thus possibly share personal data with the host of the image files, or not. This decision can be temporary or permanent. In addition, you as the administrator can also make global settings and thus, for example, allow your own image service for everyone.

Your users can revoke their permanent consent at any time on a separate subpage in their account management section. Temporary consents are automatically revoked at the end of the session.

In summary: Our extension allows you to integrate externally stored image files in compliance with GDPR and copyright law and every visitor to your website is free to choose whether or not to share his/her personal data (temporarily or permanently) with external service providers.
