General

How do I start? Do I need to pay?

You don't need to pay or even provide your credit card details to start using GetSiteControl. Sign up for a free account and start creating widgets for your website at no cost.

I'm not a developer. Is GetSiteControl difficult to install?

Not at all! We will give you a small piece of code to add to the code of your website. It's similar to how you would install a Google Analytics script. If you have never done this before, we have detailed step-by-step guides to walk you through the entire process.

Will I need to edit my website's code often?

You will need to do this only once when setting up your account. After the initial installation, you will be able to edit, create and publish widgets with a click of a button in your GetSiteControl dashboard.

How many widgets can I create?

As many as you need! There are no limitations on the number of widgets you can create and publish on your website.

Can I use GetSiteControl on my clients' websites?

Yes, you are free to use GetSiteControl widgets on websites you are building or managing for your clients. You can easily manage multiple websites under one account.

Do you offer an API?

Does it work with WordPress?

GDPR & Data Processing

Where do you store data?

All data is stored on secure Amazon servers that are EU-US Privacy Shield certified. The servers are located in the US.

Can I sign a DPA with you?

When you collect personal data using GetSiteControl widgets you act as a controller while GetSiteControl acts as a processor. In such cases, the GDPR requires signing a data processing agreement. You can review and sign a DPA in your GetSiteControl account.

Can I collect 'explicit consent' to process personal data using your widgets?

Yes, we do offer an option to add a custom consent checkbox to your GetSiteControl forms. Click here for more information.

How long do you store collected data for?

By default, all the data in your account is stored for as long as the account exists. After you delete your account, the data is stored for 30 days and then permanently deleted. If you need some of your account data deleted faster, let us know.

What about the right to be forgotten, the right to object, etc.?

If you receive a request to erase or rectify personal data processed by GetSiteControl, simply contact us. We have the tools to accommodate such requests.

What data do the widgets collect from website visitors?

In addition to the form fields you configure, all GetSiteControl widgets collect a visitor's IP address, location, OS, browser and device type. Please note that you are not allowed to collect sensitive personal data using GetSiteControl forms.
