You would like to integrate Google Maps on your website and are looking for a data protection compliant solution? You would like to show your website visitors where to find you, but at the same time you want to respect their privacy?

This is exactly where our new plugin supports you and ensures that you can integrate Google Maps on your website free of charge and in compliance with data protection regulations.

Instead of a map, we load a colored placeholder of your choice in the first step. Supplemented by a few words of your own, it becomes an attractive interaction surface for your visitors.

No data will be transferred to Google until your visitors click on the consent button. Only then will the correct map be loaded and your selected address displayed in Google Maps.

Both your placeholder and your Google Maps are mobile optimized and automatically adjust to the display size. You can also give both of them a maximum width to achieve the best optical result.

In this way you can protect the privacy of your visitors in accordance with DSGVO and at the same time give them the desired orientation to find you.

  • Until the user’s consent has been explicitly given, it prevents the connection to Google’s servers (GDPR) and thus protects the privacy of your visitors.
  • Thanks to an adjustable level, it reserves space for the card until it is loaded, thus stabilizing the design and impact of your website.
  • Based on your color and size wishes, it ensures that your placeholder automatically adapts to your layout.
  • Whether Classic Editor or Block Editor (Gutenberg): the plugin is compatible with both and makes sure that your settings are accepted and realized.
  • You have a multilingual site? The plugin works in all languages and can be designed and re-written for specific pages. DE and EN are already translated as languages.
  • It provides a required link to the Google terms of use and
  • offers a simple short code that allows you to use the secure cards anywhere.
