This is great, thanks @tshenry :+1:t2:

Can I place a feature request to be considered for a future version please?

It would be good if we could have a checkbox to allow us to set if the “policy link url” opens out in to a new window/tab or not.

I’m linking to my own privacy policy at /privacy so I don’t really want that opening another browser tab :blush:

Sure, I’ve just added that as a setting. You can now choose between _self and _blank for the link target. _self is the new default. You should see the new setting as soon as you update the component from your admin panel :slightly_smiling_face:

Great suggestion @Richie!
