What is a consent log?

A consent log is a record of user consent obtained via a consent management platform. It typically includes details such as:

  • User ID: A unique identifier for the user to identify them.
  • Consent status: Whether the user opted in or opted out of data processing.
  • Date and time: Timestamp of when consent was granted or revoked.
  • Purpose/Data: Description of the specific purpose and data types covered under the consent.

Additionally, some CMPs may also include anonymized locations or IP addresses.

A consent log acts as proof of consent which is mandated by laws like GDPR.
