Art. 6 GDPR – Lawfulness of processing

Article 6 establishes general conditions for data processing to be legal (lawfulness).

The most important topic in this article is the condition of “the data subject consent” for such processing.

Another relevant point is that article 6 authorizes member states to create new rules to be introduced in the GDPR, especially with regard to the data controller.
