Explicit consent has the same requirements as consent
, with the extra safeguard that it must be conveyed in an express written
statement. For example, through a signed written statement, or by filling in an electronic form, or by sending an email.
Note: ‘Consent’ and ‘Explicit Consent’ are different to each other in ways that are tricky to summarise. But in essence it boils down to the difference between actions
the person may take to indicate
, and a written
statement where they give
their explicit consent
Remember, regardless of which consent is used, if the person withdraws their consent the processing of their personal data must stop.
