  1. ‘Free’ consent means a voluntary decision, by an individual in possession of all of his
  2. faculties, taken in the absence of coercion of any kind, be it social, financial, psychological or
  3. other. Any consent given under the threat of non-treatment or lower quality treatment in a
  4. medical situation cannot be considered as ‘free’. Consent given by a data subject who has not
  5. had the opportunity to make a genuine choice or has been presented with a fait accompli
  6. cannot be considered to be valid. The individual data subject has a genuine free choice and
  7. must be subsequently able to withdraw the consent without detriment.
