The problem might well come from GDPR's requirement that companies give users a copy of all their data in a convenient format. "Consent has to be separately taken when data is used for advertising, marketing or service-related request and the customer must provide an explicit opt-in for each of this", said Singh.
Many privacy advocates have hailed the new law as a model for personal data protection in the internet era and called on other countries to follow the European model. This is happening because the data previously gathered by companies on their users does not qualify for consent, so they need your explicit consent for the use of that data.
GDPR spells out six specific ways that companies can justify the "processing", or use, of personal data. We urge you to read our updated Terms & Conditions and Privacy & Cookies policy to get a better understanding of this change. The new regulations guide how companies can collect and use data, what kind of disclosures they must make to consumers and when and how to seek consent.
Most online services previously tended to enable all of their data gathering checkboxes by default, because that's how they could get the most users to "agree" to that collection.

The None Of Your Business (noyb) privacy rights group, founded by Max Schrems, also accused Google, Facebook, and Facebook subsidiaries WhatsApp and Instagram of violating the GDPR due to the companies "forcing" users to consent to their new terms.
The legislation makes "privacy by design", a framework designed by Cavoukian, mandatory, and requires any requests for consent to process personal data to be easy to find and written in plain language.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, for instance, promised "global settings and controls" for users during his USA congressional testimony in April, but was otherwise vague on the subject. "It might seem like a smart move, but in some cases, it's more work", said Larry Ponemon, founder of the privacy research firm Ponemon Institute.
