Digital consent registration

How does your documentation help with digital consent registration (for example, a user accepts the cookies on my website or subscribes to a newsletter)? Since the consent needs to be stored or registered somewhere, but I don’t see it anywhere in your documentation.

Our GDPR Documentation Toolkit provides text of the consent and for the Cookie policy that must be implemented in the technical systems. GDPR requires that consent can be expressed also by an action which must be recorded in order to ensure accountability.

The register of processing activity (folder Mapping of Processing activities), for example, require to list for each processing activity (like website, or newsletter) the data processed, the purposes of processing and the record, so if the consent is given in electronic form, and registered technically in the newsletter service provider it should be registered, adding also if a transfer of data to third countries happens.

Then, the IT Security Policy, at paragraph 3.13 list all rules for email and other messaging system, requiring “Users may only send messages containing true information. It is forbidden to send materials with disturbing, unpleasant, sexually explicit, rude, slanderous or any other unacceptable or illegal content.  Users must not send spam messages to persons with whom no business relationship has been established or to persons who did not require such information”. In the Access Control Policy there is the list of persons/roles who can access to a system/network or physical area and specific rules for mailing list management can be implemented.
