Consent Management in the financial sector
Accelerate customer trust and loyalty with an integrated MitID and consent process.
With the migration from Nemid to MitID in 2021, is it also the right time to integrate the Consent Management with your customer authentication?
Consent Management is one of the five pillars in the General Data Protection (GDPR) Regulation. According to EU GDPR Article 7, the purpose of a consent is to give customers a choice and not least control over their personal data.
If a financial sector company wishes to process personal data for several purposes, the customer must be free to choose which specific purposes they give consent to.
More importantly, the consent cannot be hidden away in a wider set of terms and conditions, and a single cookie consent is not enough, if a financial company is interacting with customers. This could for instance be the case, when a new customer asks for a loan or a bank shares customer data with a mortgage credit institute or pension company.
A customer can withdraw consent at any time. It is the task of the financial company to ensure that the customer can withdraw their consent in a simple and easily accessible way.
