Websites and apps must always comply with certain obligations imposed by law. Failure to comply, in fact, carries the risk of substantial penalties.
This is why we have chosen to rely on iubenda, a company composed of both legal and technical figures who specialize in this area. Together with iubenda, of which we are Certified Partners, we have developed a proposal to offer all our clients a simple and safe solution to the need for legal compliance.
If the user has the opportunity to directly enter personal data on the site/app, such as by filling out a contact form, service registration or newsletter subscription, free, specific and informed consent must be collected and unambiguous proof of consent recorded.
WHAT IS A COOKIE?
WHAT IS MEANT BY FREE, SPECIFIC AND INFORMED CONSENT?
Consent must be collected for each specific processing purpose-for example, one consent to send newsletters and another consent to send promotional material on behalf of a third party. Consents can be requested by preparing one or more checkboxes that are not pre-selected, not mandatory, and accompanied by informational text that makes it clear to the user how their data will be used.
HOW CAN CONSENT BE UNEQUIVOCALLY DEMONSTRATED?
IS THE EMAIL I RECEIVE FROM THE USER AS A RESULT OF FILLING OUT THE FORM NOT SUFFICIENT PROOF OF CONSENT?
Unfortunately, this is not sufficient, as it lacks some information necessary to reconstruct the suitability of the consent collection procedure, such as a copy of the form actually filled out by the user.
