The European Data Protection Board released updated guidelines for consent under the EU General Data Protection Regulation. In particular, the guidelines aim to bring clarity on data subject consent in relation to cookie walls and whether web page browsing can be considered user consent. In regards to browsing and consent, the EDPB does not consider scrolling through a website to be an official form of consent because of the ambiguity associated with characterizing user activities. Editor's note: IAPP members can explore the "GDPR Genius" in the Resource Center.
