Are Consent or Pay business models compatible with the current data protection framework?
Robert Bateman is a data protection writer, trainer, and consultant. He has published innumerable articles on the topic, as well as led panel discussions and interviewed key well-known figures in the space on stage, at well-known privacy conferences. Besides freelancing as content creator, he is an associate with Act Now Training and a Subject Matter Expert with Heward Mills, a data protection consultancy.
With Robert we have addressed the recent public outcry about Instagram and Facebook becoming paid services for whoever does not want to see ads or consent to the data processing involved in running them. Given that we have already got used to seeing cookie walls on European news websites (in Germany, France, or Italy), we have aimed to open the wider debate around “Consent or Pay” business models.
