Consent

Consent is one of the most misunderstood aspects of data protection law - read our simple guidance to find out what it really means.
Overview
This guidance is for anyone who works with information about people who wants to understand how to use the ‘lawful processing condition’ known as ‘consent’ properly.

Consent, in data protection terms, is the act of someone choosing to give you their permission to do something specific with their personal data. It is one of several conditions in The Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017 (‘the Law’) that you can rely on to use someone’s information, and it is known as a ‘lawful processing condition’. There are many other conditions you can use, and consent is only appropriate in circumstances where you are giving people genuine choice over what you are doing with their information.
