Guidelines 05/2020 on consent under Regulation 2016/679

These Guidelines provide a thorough analysis of the notion of consent in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The concept of consent as used in the Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC) and in the e-Privacy Directive to date, has evolved. The GDPR provides further clarification and specification of the requirements for obtaining and demonstrating valid consent.

These Guidelines focus on these changes, providing practical guidance to ensure compliance with the GDPR and building upon the Article 29 Working Party Opinion 15/2011 on consent. The obligation is on controllers to innovate to find new solutions that operate within the parameters of the law and better support the protection of personal data and the interests of data subjects.
