Setting up data privacy and GDPR compliance on your forms

Setting up data privacy and GDPR compliance on your forms

Setting up users' data storage from forms, to properly comply GDPR, is a common issue for devs, and we want to make it easier and save time on this. If you are already using arengu to build forms and flows, you may want to learn how to take advantage on this.

Personalize legal fields and easily set up data storage in arengu, just clicking on checkboxes to get your users' data properly protected. Let's have a look!

Non persistence checkbox

By default, all data and submissions are stored in Arengu, and they are visible on flow's 'Executions' tab. But you can disable this option in 'Form settings' section, clicking on 'Store submission in arengu' checkbox. From then on, no data will be saved in the editor, simply remember to publish the change.

Users' IP collection

Just below submissions storage option, you will find the checkbox to enable or disable user's IP collection, in 'Form settings' section.

It's disabled by default, but you can activate it to start storing submissions' IP. Changes will be immediately applied, just remember to publish them! Like any data from submissions, you can consult it in flow's 'Executions' tab.

Transient fields

While the options explained in previous sections apply to all the data of each submission, arengu also allows you to personalize form's data storage field by field.

Just enable 'Transient' checkbox in each field whose data you don't want to be stored. You can change this wherever you need, and it will be immediately applied after publishing, as we explained in previous cases. You can see exactly where it is in this picture:

To include this mandatory field in the form, and ask users to accept your particular privacy policy, just drag and drop it from fields menu, write and edit enriched text. To include bold or italic styles and links, just select the text, and edition menu will automatically appear.

Still haven't tried arengu?

Arengu is a software tool created to save time and quickly iterate on developing completely personalized user verification forms, allowing you to add a new layer of flexibility of any authentication system with an API.
