Consent Service

A service for handling lawful data processing requirements.

A consent is fully identified by a source (whoever is consenting), a context (for example, an application), and an action (whatever is consented). A consent state registers the state of the consent (granted, revoked...).

Consent can be given or revoked or changed via the RegisterConsent method, which creates a new Consent entity to track the consent.

Get the current state

Getter methods of this service return the current state of a consent, that is the latest IConsent entity that was created.

Revoking a consent is performed by registering a revoked consent.

A consent cannot be deleted. It can only be revoked by registering a "revoked consent".


// store a new consent
var newConsent = _consentService.RegisterConsent("userId", "Our.Custom.Umbraco.Plugin", "AllowedToEmail", ConsentState.Granted, "some comments");

// lookup a consent
var consents = _consentService.LookupConsent("userId", "Our.Custom.Umbraco.Plugin", "AllowedToEmail", sourceStartsWith : true);
if (consents != null && consents.Any())
    var currentConsent = consents.First(c => c.Current == true);
    if(currentConsent.State  == ConsentState.Granted)
        // Do what you need
        // the state is None, Pending or Revoked
