Keep in mind that you just need to click on the form box to make changes to the GDPR form field default language.
To use the GDPR form field, the GDPR enhancements checkbox is to go to WPForms » Settings.

Step 3: Set up notifications for your subscription form
Notifications are an excellent way of sending an e-mail when you submit your subscription form on your website.
You can send a WPForms email to yourself, without disabling the notifications of the form.
Also, by adding their emails to the Send to email address field you can send a notification to your team member.
In addition, you can send a form notice to your site visitor if you are using smart tags, so that they know they have received their form.
Step 4: Set up your confirmation for subscription form.
Confirmations are a good way to inform your visitors of the form they submitted immediately.
WPForms allows you to select from three types of comfirmations:
- Message. Message. This type of confirmation shows a simple message as a visitor submits his or her form to inform the user of their form.
- Page Show. This type of confirmation will take visitors to a particular web page of your web page. See our tutorial about site visitors being redirected to a thank you page, as well as our guide for efficient Thanks pages.
- Use the URL (Redirect). This last type of confirmation will send visitors to another website.
Step 5: Add the Mailchimp subscription form on your site
You need to add it to your website after creating your Mailchimp subscription form.
You can add form in WPForms to your blog posts, pages and even as a sidebar widget in several locations.
Let’s check out the embed option for post/page. Start with the creation of a new WordPress post or page and click the Add Form button.
Next, from the Dropdown menu click Add Form. Choose your subscription form.
Finally, publish your post or page to show your subscription form on your website.
