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
This project is coordinated by Professor Joseph A. Cannataci  of the University of Groningen, Faculty of Law - Department of Corporate Law and European Law .

RUG Work Package leader is Professor Jeanne Pia Mifsud Bonnici of the University of Groningen, Faculty of Law - Department of Corporate Law and European Law .
