GDPR GUIDANCE (13) Guidance on Consent

Consent is one of the lawful grounds for the processing of personal data under Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation. Explicit consent is one of the lawful bases that can be relied on to process special categories of personal data or personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences.

This Guidance Note provides information and guidance on the conditions for consent under the Data Protection Act 2004 and the General Data Protection Regulation. It is important to note that the concept of consent is not new, as its definition and role remain similar to that under the previous EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.
