Consents

ReachFive ships with a full-fledged consent management module which allows you to collect Consents from your users, in compliance with the GDPR. This page shows you how to manage Consents from the ReachFive Console. This page focuses primarily on standalone consents. For more on grouping consents, see Consent groups.

Consent of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

For information on collecting and using Consents, see Collect and analyze consents.

Manage Consents from console

You can create, update, and archive user Consents easily from the ReachFive Console.

If you do not see the Consent option available on your ReachFive Console, get in touch with ReachFive Support as the feature may need to be enabled.

Prerequisites

  • You must have access to the ReachFive Console.

  • You must have a Developer, Manager, or Administrator role.

  • You must have the Consents feature enabled.

Instructions

  1. Log in to your ReachFive Console.

  2. Navigate to Settings  Consents.

  3. Create, edit, or archive a Consent.

    • Create

    • Edit

    • Archive

    1. Click New Consent.

    2. Enter a Key for your Consent.

    3. Choose the Consent Type.

      • opt-in: Requires explicit action by the user on signup.

      • opt-out: Automatically accepted on user signup. If a user does not want to accept the given processing purpose, the user must explicitly opt out of it.

        Opt-outs are considered lawful only if justified by legitimate interest.
    4. Add a Tag. Hit Enter to ensure the tag is received.

      Tags are normalized before being saved. This means that trailing spaces are removed and all letters are converted to lowercase. Duplicate tags are also removed.
    5. Under the Version 1 tab, add a Translation for your Consent.

      Make sure you first add a translation for the account’s default language. After that, you can add as many translations as you like.
    1. Choose the language for your translation from the dropdown menu.

    2. Give the consent translation a Title.

      This is the primary text that the user sees when consenting.
    3. Write a Description for the consent translation.

      This describes the consent to the user. For example, "Sign up to our newsletter".
    1. Don’t forget to Save your input.

    1. Click the edit icon under Actions.

    2. Update your Consent as needed.

      It is okay to edit an existing Consent version. However, if there are substantial changes that impact what the user is agreeing (or not agreeing) to. We highly recommend that you create a new version.
    1. To add a new Consent version, click Add new version.

    2. Choose the language for your translation from the dropdown menu.

    3. Give the consent translation a Title.

      This is the primary text that the user sees when consenting.
    4. Write a Description for the consent translation.

      This describes the consent to the user. For example, "Sign up to our newsletter".
    1. Don’t forget to Save your input.

    1. Find the Consent that you would like to archive.

    2. Click the archive icon under Actions.

    3. Click Yes when the pop-up asks if you want to archive the consent.

    You can see the consent is archived when it is greyed out as shown in the image below.

    You can reactivate a consent at any time.

Set the default language for Consents

You must set the account’s default language for Consents in the ReachFive Console. Ensure that all Titles and Descriptions for your Consents are in the same language as your default language. For additional languages, add a translation.

If the Title and Description are in a language that do not match the default language selection in the ReachFive Console, your Consent Title and Description will default to the selected default language, potentially causing translation issues.

Prerequisites

  • You must have access to the ReachFive Console.

  • You must have a Developer, Manager, or Administrator role.

  • You must have the Consents feature enabled.

Instructions

  1. Log in to your ReachFive Console.

  2. Navigate to Settings > Consents.

  3. Under Widgets configuration, select your Default language from the dropdown menu.
