Amendments by Mariya Gabriel

(25) Consent should be given explicitlyunambiguously by any appropriate method enabling a freely given specific and informed indication of the data subject’s wishes, either by a statement or by a clear affirmative action by the data subject, ensuring that individuals are aware that they give their consent to the processing of personal data, including by ticking a box when visiting an Internet website or by any other statement or conduct which clearly indicates in this context the data subject’s acceptance of the proposed processing of their personal data. Silence or inactivity should therefore not constitute consent. Consent should cover all processing activities carried out for the same purpose or purposes. If the data subject’s consent is to be given following an electronic request, the request must be clear, concise and not unnecessarily disruptive to the use of the service for which it is provided. The information provided in order for children to express the consent should be given in a clear and age-appropriate language, in a way that it would be easy to understand for a child above the age of 13.
 
(29) Children deserve specific protection of their personal data, as they may be less aware of risks, consequences, safeguards and their rights in relation to the processing of personal data and they are also vulnerable consumers. To determine when an individual is a child, this Regulation should take over the definition laid down by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. In particular, child-friendly language should be used to ensure the right of consent for children above the age of 13.
 
1a. The information provided in order to express the consent should be given in a clear and age-appropriate language, in a way that would be easy to understand for the child above the age of 13 years.
 
3a. In any case, children should not be subject to measures of profiling, as referred to in paragraph 1.
