GDPR Configuring Explicit Consent

GDPR Configuring Explicit Consent

Our clients (Data Controllers) may require additional information to be collected from assessment takers, and it is the Controllers who define what this information could be (PI, SPI). To ensure that assessment takers are made aware of why such information is being collected, there is a provision of configuring and enabling 'explicit consent' which can be obtained from candidates before administering an assessment.
The consent statement should clearly convey the following:
  1. The purpose of collecting the personal information
  2. Mention the entities/organizations who require this information
  3. Duration of storing this information
To setup such consent statement, go to Account > Details > Data Privacy Settings section and click on Enable the Explicit Consent. (By default, the explicit consent is disabled for your account.) Once you enable the consent, you can customize the consent statement according to your business needs. You will find a default generic statement but we recommend that you speak to your Legal team and customize it.

After you have saved the consent for your Mettl account, it will start appearing for all candidates/employees while filling up the Registration Fields. The candidates will be able to proceed with the test only on agreeing to the statement by clicking on the checkbox.

  1. Only the account admin will be able to configure the explicit consent statement.
  2. For more information about GDPR and explicit consent, you can refer this article.

To remove the consent statement, you can again go to the Explicit Consent section under Data Privacy Settings and click on Disable.

Once the explicit consent is enabled and configured, it will appear for ALL candidates taking any assessment being conducted through that account irrespective of their geography.
