Owner field update (html)


We've shipped a small feature that allows making changes to the owner field:

  • you can now use some html tags such as bold, italic, etc.
  • more importantly this allows you to add additional information that should be there around the owner's name/company name

For instance, it's a great place to add a data processor/appointed personnel and their names or/and contact data.

Until now, the owner field was relative rigid and we forced it to adhere to the structure "company name, email". Now you can use the field in whatever way you want to deviate from the original structure.

Added new services: MailChimp widget and more


We've added new integrations into the iubenda privacy policy generator that users can add starting today:

  • MailChimp widget (if you add a widget to your site powered by MailChimp)
  • Typeform widget (if you embed Typeform into your site in any way)

As we've always been from the beginning, we are open to your addition suggestions. You can place them in our support forum.

New cookie solution options, up to 40% faster


We've just announced a new version of our cookie solution called Safemode. In short:

Up to 40% Faster – Reduces time to banner appearance and scripts reactivation

Inline activator – With the inline activator – or the part of code that deals with activation of the script - a script can also be activated in the event that the main resource iubenda_cs.js is found to be generally unavailable or resulting in error

No more compatibility issues - Safemode doesn't depend on external libraries (jQuery and Zepto) with the result that we've eliminated compatibility issues with particular version of these libraries

News about Safe Harbor/Privacy Shield


The European Commission has just detailed and published the rules companies must follow to comply with Privacy Shield. Now, a draft of the adequacy decision which is indispensable to give the agreement force of law, is out and viewable.

Immediate next steps: this draft will now be examined and reviewed by a committee composed of representatives of the Member States and by the EDPS (“European Data Protection Supervisor”); it will then be submitted to representatives of the national data protection authorities (the Art.29 Working Party) before the actual adoption of the final text by the European Commission.

Links updated to https


We've updated all links to https in the privacy policy texts that wouldn't break:

  • all links that work with https were moved to https
  • all links that were redirecting were changed to its redirect
  • if there were new, different language policies for a particular language, they were also added to the service

That means that from now on, most of the 500+ integrations will link to https links as for example https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. This means that it will not break in environments like iOS 9 and will contribute to the web being just a tad safer.

Intercom: service updated
