Feeds for YouTube GDPR Compliance

Important: If you are using our Feeds for YouTube plugin on your website then please refer to our GDPR disclosure for full details regarding compliance and how data is transferred and stored.

GDPR Setting

As of version 1.3 there is a setting to enable special GDPR related features in feeds. By default this setting is set to “Automatic.” If one of the following plugins is detected, the plugin will load a GDPR compliant version of the feed until consent is given:

For other GDPR plugins that are not listed here, if they have a setting to run custom JavaScript code once the cookie notice has been accepted, see this guide for setting up a GDPR integration.

Before the visitor gives consent, the GDPR compliant version of the feed has the following differences:

  • To view videos, visitors will click a link to view the video on YouTube.
  • If the setting to hide CDN images is enabled, no images will display.

Older Versions of the Plugin (before Pro v1.3 and Free v1.3)

In older versions, the image files for the images in the feed are loaded directly from the YouTube CDN and the YouTube iFrame JavaScript API code is loaded automatically.
