Set Data Retention Limits
In order to comply with the EU GDPR/UK GDPR, you may need to set custom data retention limits in your account.
The default data retention setting for individual bookings is 24 months: 24 months after a booking is made, the data will automatically deleted. This setting can be changed in the settings on the account:
The data retention policy that is set will only delete the bookings information from YouCanBook.me. It will not delete the information from the linked cloud calendar.
For example, if the data retention policy is set to 12 months, all bookings from more than 1 year ago will be deleted from YouCanBook.me. The date of deletion will be one year after the appointment date.

Require Bookers to Accept Terms
To maintain your EU GDPR/UK GDPR compliance, you may need to add a "Terms" section to your booking form. This guide explains how.
