    I think there should be an opt-out for this feature as not everyone likes every single action that they’ve done logged, regardless of the benefits.

    This absolutely needs an opt-out! This, like it looks here and what is described about it, is not GDPR compliant. For this alone, there needs to be an opt-out!

    For GDPR there needs to be IP anonymizing etc.
    It needs to be documented what data is stored where, how long, who has access to it and when it will be deleted.

    Automatically opt-in such features that in any way affect GDPR/ privacy in general is a no-go!

      I think the details you are looking for are all on the privacy policy page.

        Do the people who use site with jetpack know that? Is there a link to that page automatically generated on these websites? If not, it is not compliant.

        Do the people who use site with jetpack know that?

        That information is indeed available when one connects their site to WordPress.com in the first place, and is mentioned in the “Privacy” page within the Jetpack dashboard.

        Is there a link to that page automatically generated on these websites?

        That link isn’t automatically added to your site for you but Jetpack, like other plugins, uses WordPress’ built-in privacy policy builder to help you add relevant content to your privacy policy. To make that easier, Jetpack also offers tools that can help you with that (you’ll most likely be more interested in the “Privacy Policy Helper” section).

        The mentioned details are NOT on their privacy page — the Live Monitor tool is not even mentioned.

        So, this whole thing is not compliant – you cannot use it if your company is located within the EU.

        @David Decker Check this page; this is probably what you are looking for.

        If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to try to install and activate Jetpack; you’ll see links to those pages during the connection process, and you’ll be able to get more information on the Privacy page of the Jetpack dashboard.

        If you’d rather not install Jetpack, another option is to check the post we had published about our work earlier this year.

        Once you have all the information, you should be able to make an informed decision. We cannot give specific legal advice about your particular site of course because we are not your attorney, but you can use all that information and compare that with the recommendations of your attorney and figure out if Jetpack is a tool for you.

    No opt out, no disable switch. Clearly voids GDPR.

    It appears that wordpress.com has no idea about GDPR, this “feature” makes use of wordpress.com sites in EU illegal.

    We are doing something like this. We are showing recent events in WordPress or EDD stores. https://wpdrift.io/.
    It would be a single dashboard for your all WordPress sites,
    helping you understand your data
    and make more informed decisions.
