#GDPR helper service This is a Laravel package to help implement GDPR compliance in a system


composer require cerpus/gdpr

If you are running on Laravel 5.4 or less you must add the service provider to config/app.php.

'providers' => [


In Laravel 5.5 and up the package will auto register.

Publish artifacts to your app.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Cerpus\Gdpr\GdprServiceProvider"

This will publish the config file to config/gdpr.php. The GdprService will have a default deletion file, and you have to make a class that implements the Cerpus\Gdpr\Contracts\GdprDeletionContract interface. Change the config/gdpr.php file to point to your implementation.

return [
  'deletion-class' => Cerpus\Gdpr\DummyDeletion::class,

php artisan migrate to run the published migration(s).


To implement the GDPR deletion in your system create a class somewhere in your app that implements the Cerpus\Gdpr\Contracts\GdprDeletionContract.

See src/DummyDeletion.php for the default example. You can copy this and rename it to start you deletion class.

As an example if you create a file in app/Gdpr/GdprDelete.php you must update the config/gdpr.php like this:

return [
  'deletion-class' => App\Gdpr\GdprDelete::class,

The delete method will receive a GdprDeletionRequest as parameter. The request itself is in $deletionRequest->payload and will at least include an AuthId (userId).

You should log the progress of the deletion using $deletionRequest->log('processing', <your message here>); at appropriate times.
