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:
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.

This is a simple extension that provides a set of "Communication Preferences" custom fields for each contact. Email, Phone and Mail(Post) are provided.
The fields are provided as "Yes/No" fields so that when placed on a form (eg. a profile) the user must explicitly set one or the other. When they are updated the corresponding "Do not" fields on the contact record are updated accordingly.
Note that "Phone" incorporates both the "Do not Phone" and "Do not SMS" flags.
