Consent Checkboxes for Forms

If you have any forms that collect data on your website, you should have a consent checkbox as part of the form that requires the user to acknowledge they have accepted the terms under which you will be processing their data as outlined in your Privacy Policy.

Adding a Checkbox to Your Form

Follow these steps to add the checkbox to your form.

  • Use a checkbox input field. (If you are using Gravity Forms, they have a Consent form field.)
  • The checkbox must not be checked by default. The user must take action to click the checkbox on their own.
  • Make the checkbox a required field that the user cannot leave blank.
  • Make sure the checkbox's description contains a link to your Privacy Policy, not just a reference to it.
  • Publish the form and take it for a test drive to ensure it works as you expect.
