Data for discounts – Is it possible to ask consent to gain more information by data subjects in exchange of discount on product/service? Yes! EDPB said…How? With the Guidelines n. 05/2020 (May 2020) on consent under Regulation 2016/679, at page 13 – example 9, the EDPB explains the concept of “detriment” in case of consent withdrown by data subjects:  “A data subject subscribes to a fashion retailer’s newsletter with general discounts.

When the data subject later revokes consent, he or she will receive non-personalised fashion discounts again. This does not amount to detriment as only the permissible incentive was lost.“.
