In the context of data privacy, consent defines the clear and explicit permission obtained by a company to process or use an individual’s personal information. When an individual provides consent, they should clearly understand why and how a company will use their personal information. Consent must be explicit, in that the company provides clear and unambiguous consent agreements and clear ways for individuals to withdrawal consent.
The GDPR provides a clear definition of consent with: “‘consent’ of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her”.
We take privacy seriously. While we promise not to sell your personal data, we may send product and company updates periodically. You can opt-out or make changes to our communication updates at any time.
