Philippines: The NPC releases guidelines on consent
I am pleased to share my Insight article here, which appears on OneTrust DataGuidance. My article discusses the National Privacy Commission‘s Circular No. 2023-04, which refers to the Guidelines on Consent. 🔐
In this piece, I discuss and summarize comprehensive guidelines outlined by the NPC on the use of consent as a lawful basis for data processing. 🤝💻
Explore crucial insights and updates that personal information controllers (PICs) need to ensure compliance with these new guidelines. Here I focus on the more practical implications of both the Circular as well as the NPC Advisory on Deceptive Design Patterns (as both should be read together):
·      Circular’s impact on existing mechanisms for privacy notices
·      timing of obtaining consent
·      withdrawal of consent
·      level of granularity
·      use of the ‘average member of the target audience’ standard
·      prohibitions against deceptive design patterns, and
·      the applicable compliance period.
