Article 6 - Principles - Lawfulness of processing

In data privacy laws are in general prohibiting the use of data. Companied can only process data if they have a justification to do so. Justifications like ‘consent’ by the user are listed in Article 6. The more justifications allow the processing of data, the easier it gets to collect and use your personal data. At the same time the regulations should be practical. If you are only allowed to process data after giving ‘consent’, we would spend all clicking on buttons to give our consent. Things like video surveillance in a bank would not be possible, because you can’t get the consent of every single customer. So there must be other justifications as well, but how many?
