Consent is a process that the User undertakes at a Web Site to agree to some conditions of use of that site. Only some Artifact of the process can be used as proof that consent was freely given.


  • One source for a Consent is the Indian Government[1]

In order to ensure that consent is freely given, consent should not provide a valid legal ground for the processing of personal data in a specific case where there is a clear imbalance between the data subject and the controller, in particular where the controller is a public authority and it is therefore unlikely that consent was freely given in all the circumstances of that specific situation. Consent is presumed not to be freely given if it does not allow separate consent to be given to different personal data processing operations despite it being appropriate in the individual case, or if the performance of a contract, including the provision of a service, is dependent on the consent despite such consent not being necessary for such performance. </blockquote>

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has published Guidelines for obtaining meaningful consent[2] which "sets out practical and actionable guidance regarding what organizations should do to ensure that they obtain meaningful consent."


It's easy to say that the user should have control of their own data, it's hard to capture the fact.
