EU’s Article 29 Working Party publishes consent guidance

EU guidance on the consent rules in GDPR have now been published by the Article 29 Working Party.

The guidance covers how consent works from a GDPR perspective including how to interpret “freely given”, “specific”, “informed” and “detriment”. It also adds some clarity about how to collect explicit consent is required.

There’s not much in here that should come as a surprise, but hopefully the fact this is now published, should hopefully be an indication that the ICO’s own consent guidance will follow shortly.
