  • Consent must be used only for the specified purpose and must be easy to understand with no hidden contradictions.
  • Consent must be segregated by type such as for advertising or analytics and not all inclusive.
  • The user should have the option of opting in and it should not be compulsory as in pre-checked boxes.
  • Companies have to retain all materials regarding the consent as a proof.
  • Users should have the option to be able to easily withdraw from the consent
