Sending emails with personalised links / Opt-in to communications

I've had a few requests from clients recently with queries around updating contact details and permissions with the new GDPR data protection legislation coming into force in Europe in May.

As a result I've developed two very simple extensions which I'd like to share:

Contact Checksum

This extension provides a simple UI under the contact summary via Actions->Contact Checksum.

When opened a simple UI is displayed with information and example links to use in emails when sending personalised / "update your details" links from CiviCRM.

Smartdebit for CiviCRM 4.7 (Direct Debit Payments)

I'm please to announce the release of a new Smart Debit extension for CiviCRM 4.7.

The new extension is based on the vedaconsulting (https://vedaconsulting.co.uk) extensions for previous releases of CiviCRM but is rewritten and includes a number of new features and enhancements.  Development and Testing has been funded by Circle Interactive (https://circle-interactive.co.uk) and implemented by MJW Consulting (https://www.mjwconsult.co.uk).
