Starting WordPress Sites on SiteGround Just Got Easier

You can build just about anything using WordPress. With thousands of themes and plugins, anyone can access the features and functionalities they need to achieve their goals. But for a person just starting out, all the options can be overwhelming. Rather than be a source of inspiration, the choices can become a blocker to launching that brand new site.

SiteGround is now GDPR Compliant

Over a year ago, SiteGround began the important task of preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - a new law designed to protect the personal data and privacy of EU residents. While working on this implementation we have seen that the main principles behind the law are genuinely good for our users. The regulation aims to make personal data processing more transparent and to give people more control over their data. Even though the GDPR only applies to EU citizens, we have decided to go beyond and adopt the same good policies for all of our users, regardless of their citizenship or location. The new rules are becoming effective on 25th of May 2018. The following two documents apply these rules to our service:

  1. Our Privacy Policy, which describes how we collect, use, share and process our customers’ personal data.
  2. Our Data Processing Agreement (DPA), which regulates our responsibilities as a host, thus allowing our clients to have GDPR compliant sites themselves, if they need to.
