Click to accept – not always good enough, says the New Zealand Privacy Commissioner.
Companies need to be fully transparent about their data processing practices and take steps to ensure that this is conveyed to the individuals.
In the case of a “clicked consent,” the Commissioner will also check:
- Why the company believes that click actually conveys an authority to undertake the action.
- What research was done to establish the number of people who read the terms.
