CIPL recommendations for implementing transparency, consent and legitimate interest under GDPR

The Centre for Information Policy Leadership at Hunton & Williams LLP issued a white paper on Recommendations for Implementing Transparency, Consent and Legitimate Interest under GDPR.
The White Paper sets forth guidance and recommendations on the key concepts of transparency, consent and legitimate interest under GDPR. One of the main objectives of GDPR is the empowerment of individuals and transparency is a prerequisite to meet this objective. However, it notes a growing gap between legal transparency through traditional and lengthy privacy policies and notices and user-centric transparency.
CIPL recommends that transparency under the GDPR be user-centric: informing users through meaningful information in concise and intelligible formats.
