When it is UNNECCESSARY to grant consent for the collection and processing of personal data
Lately we are witnessing an increase in the requests for consent for the collection and processing of personal data of citizens by different service providers. In CPDP, on a daily basis, signals and questions arrive regarding the necessity to require and grant consent. We must not forget that consent should be as easily revoked as it is granted, because of which the processing of personal data only on the grounds of consent is not always the best choice and it is good to make an assessment whether a different legal ground is present. With regards to the heightened public interest and the apparent importance of this question, CPDP prepared an informatory material on the cases in which data controllers/processors should not require the consent of natural persons to gather and process their personal data.
The material is published on the website of CPDP in section “Get Informed”, subsection “Issues of high public interest” and “Awareness-raising materials on the Regulation (EU) 2016/679” -HERE.
All information on „consent” is published HERE.
