Consent for charities
GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation. When is consent not consent?
Consent has been relied upon by charities for a long time as a means to provide both a way for an individual to choose whether or not their information is going to be recorded (electronically and physically) and of course to ensure that the charity is fulfilling its obligations under the Data Protection Act. However with the advent of GDPR, consent and what it actually means has been redefined, or rather the balance of power specifically looked at - if a charity is offering services in exchange for consent, then GDPR is very specific in saying that this is not true consent.
