The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply in the UK from May 2018 and replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).
The GDPR sets a high standard for consent. It builds on the DPA standard of consent in a number of areas and it contains significantly more detail that codifies existing European guidance and good practice.
Under the GDPR, "consent" of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
