What is implied consent?

Implied consent refers to a type of consent that is not explicitly given, but rather is inferred from a user’s behavior or actions. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the user has voluntarily given consent.

For example, if someone visits a website and continues browsing without interacting with the cookie banner, it can be assumed that they have given consent for the use of cookies. However, such consent is deemed invalid in regulations like GDPR. Therefore, understanding the circumstances and potential implications of implied consent is crucial to ensure that users’ privacy and rights are protected.
