When did Anna give her consent?

Watch how Anna gives consent, or doesn't she?

Take another look at the first part of Anna’s medical voyage. Can you identify if Anna gave consent to processing her health data to her GP, at the hospital or when downloading the running app?

Discuss with other learners and explain your reasoning on the following questions:

  • Is informed consent for the running app enough or is explicit consent necessary for processing health data?

  • Is explicit consent valid if privacy policies are not read?
