Ensuring Consent and Revocation

Ensuring Consent and Revocation aims to make an individual's consent a more powerful means for allowing them to control what happens to the personal information they disclose to organisations.

We think that this control should be capable of shaping the purposes this information is used for, with which other organisations it is shared, and for how long and where it is stored. Today, the consent required of individuals for the use, sharing and storage of personal information by others will often be a one-off choice, described in vague terms or given implicitly. This type of consent gives individuals no real control over personal information, nor the ability to revoke their consent and be sure that their wishes are respected. Our work will improve the ease, reliability and rigour with which individuals can grant and, more importantly, revoke their consent to the use, storage and sharing of their personal information by others.
