GDPR Age of "Digital" Consent

by Claire Quinn

UPDATED Age of Consent Map.

The GDPR has set the age of consent at 16, meaning users 15 years and younger need parent consent where applicable. However, member states can choose a younger age down to 13. See the map below.

Developers will need to prove that consent is valid, that it is informed and granular and that they have methods in place to allow parents to exercise their rights in relation to children. This may require parent dashboards or a parent portal to allow for the management of consent and revocation.
