Consent for multiple purposes definition

What does Consent for multiple purposes mean?

Consent should cover all processing activities carried out for the same purpose or purposes. When the processing has multiple purposes, consent should be given for all of them. Consent is presumed not to be freely given if it does not allow separate consent to be given to different personal data processing operations. This means blanket consent will not be appropriate and you should give data subjects options to consent to different types of processing.
