Consent

A data subject’s consent for data collection under the GDPR can only be obtained after the purpose specification has been presented. The purpose should be unambiguous and/or explicit. This is referred to as active consent. For example, organisations will no longer be allowed to use automatic pre-ticked “opt-in” boxes for email lists, and they must be able to provide proof that the “opt-in” was not automatic.
