    dear support team
    a customer of mine would like to display buttons on facebook and instgram on her website The lawyer commissioned by her with regard to data protection has stated in this regard that we need an additional tool (plug-in) for the data protection-compliant use of the social media buttons and YouTube so that the data is not transferred to the third-party providers when the page is called up (2-click principle). This can e.g. implemented by the “Shariff” tool.
    Now there is a plugin called “Shariff Wrapper” for the possible plugins or alternatively the plugin “Shariff for WordPress”.
    Are these two plugins compatible with the ENFOLD version and do they fulfill the stated purpose? Or would you recommend another plugin?
    When calling the “Shariff for WordPress” plugin, the following is added to the baking: Untested with your version of WordPress.
    What recommendation could you give us?

    Thank you very much and best regards Diana


    yes it works good – i use them too- but:

    To understand what the tool really does, it is necessary to take a close look at the law.
    I don’t think that the link to your Facebook page et al. is the problem. It’s these buttons you can press to share an article or a page. There, information about the page and the IP address of the person who clicks on it are forwarded directly.
    Similar to the button that leads to a GoogleMap page – even to a map in an iframe – does not violate the GDPR (DSGVO – for the German speaking countries).
    When a map is embedded it is different. And so it is with the Share Buttons.
    Shariff Wrapper does exactly that – it prevents the personalized transfer of data from the person who presses the Share Button.
    That means you can already use Enfold’s social buttons, which only provide the link to the page.
    But you should leave this function to the Shariff Wrapper.


    Thank you for your good explanation and briefing.
    Everything went very well with the plugin!
    Kind regards Diana
