The consent must be received freely and explicitly from the natural person and the Controller must be able to prove that has received it.

In 2016, the European Union passed the General Data Protection Regulation 679/2016, also known as the GDPR, and entered into force in May 2018.

Its purpose is to ensure control by natural person of the processing of their personal data by organizations-companies.

One of the basic principles of the Regulation is the Principle of Legality of processing, such as the satisfaction of the need for proof by those who process personal data regarding the legal act of processing. It can be based, among other things (legal interest, the conclusion of a contract, legal obligation, performance of a public duty), and on the consent of a natural person.
