Consent is a part of every major modern data privacy regulation, but there’s no global standard. For example, Europe’s GDPR is considered an “opt-in” jurisdiction, meaning that organizations must obtain an explicit and affirmative consent from an individual prior to collecting, processing, or storing personal information collected from individuals. California’s CCPA takes the opposite “opt-out” approach, with consent assumed to be provided, and organizations are required to provide a mechanism for individuals to withdraw their consent, at which point companies need to restrict their collection, processing and storage of an individual’s personal information. This creates a potential compliance landmine for organizations looking to comply with regulations on a global basis; how can they comply given the differences among the laws?
Consent by Jurisdiction
Let’s walk through some of the major legislation currently on the books. The table below outlines consent obligations, specifically for websites, for CCPA, GDPR, and LGPD:
There’s no one-size-fits all solution to global data privacy; implementing a static solution will lead to financial penalties that could be otherwise avoided by leveraging technologies to take the kind of dynamic approach needed to comply with global regulations as they continue to be enacted, implemented and modified.
