How can you ensure your course is GDPR compliant?
If you are processing the personal data of European Union residents, then the EU GDPR may apply to you. While Teachery is unable to provide legal advice, we encourage course creators to take the necessary steps to determine whether or not you need GDPR compliance. You may want to:
Familiarize yourself with the requirements of the GDPR (this is a great article)
Review your sub-processors* (if you take payment outside of Teachery or if you send customer data from Teachery into any email provider or other service) to determine if they are compliant with the new regulation
➡️ This is a great article if you're a course creator and not sure what you need to do for GDPR compliance.
How to add a simple Consent Statement to your Payment Page(s)
This is a very simple way to comply to GDPR. Add a line of consent text that links to your Terms and Privacy page (you host both of those pages on your own website).
On Teachery Payment Pages we recommend using the "Features" section as a place to put your consent statement. You may also add it in the text section below the title of the page.
