Or do not give consent in the first place!

“For consent to be fully informed and freely given you need to tell the customer exactly why you need the information, what you are going to do with it and whom you might share it with. We cannot put any conditions on a customer to try and persuade them to consent.Source: DWP Jobcentre  policy on Consent
