Definition Edit

Active consent means

a user is given a clear opportunity to agree a specific and notified use of their personal information. Active consent would apply to secondary non-obvious use of a user's personal information, and/or applications that have additional privacy implications for users such as an app requesting a user's location where such data is not necessary to the functioning of the application. Active consent must be captured in a way so that consent is not the default option.[1]
