This specification defines a mechanism for expressing user decisions about personal data processing under the European Union’s data protection regulations, and similar regulations outside the EU. The mechanism functions through the exchange of HTTP headers between the user agent and the web server, or through an equivalent JavaScript interface. The mechanism serves as an automated means for users to give or refuse consent, to withdraw any consent already given, as well as to object to processing. The mechanism provides an alternative to existing nonautomated consent management approaches (e.g. ‘cookie banners’) and aims to reduce the efforts of the different parties involved regarding the protection of users’ privacy.
