Consent Management Guide

The topic of online consent is fiercely debated. As more people become aware and conscious of their digital footprint, more are demanding clarity and information about how their data is being processed and used.

There’s different levels of consent/permission and terms you should know of such as: Informed Consent, Granular Control, Revocable Permission, Clear Communication, and Record Keeping.

As a result of growing global privacy laws, consent management and abiding by local consent regulations and laws have never been more important.

Without a clear process of obtaining, tracking, and managing individuals’ data with their explicit consent, you open yourself up to serious fines and other negative impacts on your organization.

It’s crucial for organizations to be aware of and comply with the specific consent rules in the jurisdictions where they operate or collect data.
