The Consent Service is an HTTP-based REST API hosted by the PingDirectory Server or PingDirectoryProxy Server. The service enables the collection of consent from application users, the enforcement of consent, a user's management of his or her consent, and auditing of consent actions. Enterprises can integrate these features into their applications to give users transparency and control of their data privacy.
|Consent definition||The terms of the fine-grained contract, which describes the data that can be processed or shared, and a purpose for processing or sharing the data. The consent definition is stored in the server configuration.|
|Consent localization||A child object of a definition that contains versioned, localized text for the consent definition, to be used when prompting an individual. This is stored in the server configuration.|
|Consent record||A record of a consent interaction with a user. Consent records are stored in the directory tree.|
|Subject||The individual whose data can be collected, processed, or shared.|
|Actor||The individual who granted/denied/revoked consent. This is usually the same as the subject.|
|Audience||The entity, application, or service that is granted or denied access to a subject's data for a specific purpose.|
