Study commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection
New ConPolicy-project on innovative privacy consent management

In order to meet the legal requirements of privacy consent in a user-friendly as well as legally secure manner, innovative consent management systems are necessary. Against this background the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection commissioned the study “Innovative Privacy Consent Management”, which analyzes already existing models of consent management and develops new solutions for legally compliant and user-friendly consent in the online area.

Until March 2020 ConPolicy conducts the study in cooperation with Prof Dr Gerald Spindler. Methodologically the study is based on a literature review, online survey, expert workshop and the development and evaluation of best-practice solutions.
