To create a GDPR compliant signup form, you’ll need the following.
To add a checkbox to your signup form for GDPR compliance, you must first create a contact list or choose from an existing list and add a custom field to the same.
Once the field type is edited, we need to create the signup form compliant with GDPR.
You can change any of the list fields to meet your needs, with the exception of the following: First Name, Last Name, Middle Name, and Email Address.
Now, it is time to create or edit your signup form.
On the second step of the signup form creation process, you’ll add the field you edited in the previous step.

The above checkbox cannot be created using the Small Embed form as it is not supported.

Please be aware that modifying the codes given above could break the code. The HTML code must be exact for it to render correctly. For example, when using quotation marks, make sure you are using straight quotation marks and not curly. If you notice your quotes changing from straight to curly, copy the code to a text notepad, fix the error, and then paste it again. Curly quotes will not render the code correctly.
