Asking for consent
☐ We have checked that consent is the most appropriate lawful basis for processing.
☐ We have made the request for consent prominent and separate from our terms and conditions. We require businesses to click a separate box to confirm consent
☐ We ask people to positively opt in by visiting our Join Us Free page.
☐ We don’t use pre-ticked boxes or any other type of default consent.
☐ We use clear, plain language that is easy to understand.
☐ Individuals can refuse to provide personal information without detriment. We will only display information provided
☐ It is not a precondition of the service to provide any data that is considered personal.
☐ We keep a record of when and how we got consent from the individual.
☐ We keep a record of exactly what they were told at the time.
☐ We regularly review consents (yearly) to check that the relationship, the processing and the purposes have not changed.
☐ We have processes in place to refresh consent at appropriate intervals, including any parental consents.
☐ We will consider using privacy dashboards or other preference-management tools as a matter of good practice.
☐ We will act on withdrawals of consent as soon as we can.
☐ We don’t penalise individuals who wish to withdraw consent. We are happy to work with individuals who wish to tailor the information listed about themselves or their business
