What is CONSENT about?

CONSENT is the largest EU-supported multi-million Euro research project investigating consumer sentiment and privacy in on-line situations.

 

CONSENT OBJECTIVES

One of the key changes in societal trends and lifestyles witnessed over the past few years has been the move on-line of many consumers and the way they have become increasingly sophisticated in their media consumption habits. Have these recent changes to consumer and commercial practices developed in such a way that consumers are (in)voluntarily signing away their fundamental right to privacy?

 

CONSENT is a collaborative project that seeks to examine how consumer behaviour, and commercial practices are changing the role of consent in the processing of personal data.

 

CONSENT aims to study and analyse:

  • changes in consumer online behaviour
  • bahviour and consumerculture
  • effects of contractual, commercial and technical practices on consumer choice
  • consumer attitudes toward personal privacy
