Consent and data protection information according to the GDPR

Consent according to the GDPR

If a company wants to process personal data, it always needs a legal basis as a reservation of consent. If a company does not have a permissible legal basis for processing personal data, the processing is not allowed.

In the General Data Protection Regulation, the legal bases are regulated under EU-GDPR Art. 6. According to EU-GDPR Art. 6 (1) para. 1a , processing is legal if the data subject has given their consent to the processing of their data for a specific purpose.

A declaration of consent should be made by a definite confirmatory act. For instance, this can be done by a signature or in some cases with a verbal confirmation. In all cases, the declaration of consent must be verifiable.

In general, when the declaration of consent is obtained, the data subject must be informed about the collection, use and processing of their personal data. This information can be provided by a data protection declaration.

Declaration of consent in vistrax checklists

For a simple process, we have developed a checklist template with that your visitor can give his consent for data processing.

I hereby confirm that:

"Muster GmbH" is allowed to collect and process my personal data (name, telephone number, e-mail address, postal address, etc.) for the purpose of tracing visitors. For this purpose, the data will be stored on the servers of "Muster GmbH" and can only be viewed and processed by authorised persons. If additional data is required, separate consent is required from the visitor. Further information can be found in the data protection information for visitors (version xx). Deletion of the collected data (automatically) takes place after "XX" months.

The setup of the checklist is described in the application help:


Note: The template above makes absolutely no claim to legal certainty or completion. It serves merely as an illustration. Furthermore, the declaration of consent requires explicit and relevant adaptation to the individual case. Please consult a data protection officer if you wish to prepare a data protection-compliant declaration of consent.
