Term Main definition
Fairness means data subjects must be aware of the fact that their personal data will be processed, including how the data will be collected, kept and used, to allow them to make an informed decision about whether they agree with such processing and to enable them to exercise their data protection rights. Consent notices should not contain unfair terms and supervisory authority powers should similarly be exercised fairly.
Freely Given
The General Data Protection Regulation requires that consent be a freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject
