djblets.privacy.consent.base

Base support for consent types, data, and requirements.

class Consent(value)[source]

Values for representing consent decisions.

UNSET = 0[source]

Consent has not been set.

GRANTED = 1[source]

Consent was granted.

DENIED = 2[source]

Consent was denied.

class ConsentData(requirement_id, granted=False, timestamp=None, source=None, extra_data=None)[source]

Data representing a granted or denied consent for a requirement.

This tracks data about granted or denied consent for use in both setting a consent decision and for recording in an audit trail. The data tracks a number of important bits of information for later proving that consent was granted or denied at a particular point in time.

Note that this does not track unset consent. It’s only used when a decision was specifically made.

granted

Whether consent was granted (True) or denied (False).

Type

bool

extra_data

Additional data to include that may be relevant for an audit. This can contain any information, and is up to the caller to determine.

Type

dict

requirement_id

The ID of a ConsentRequirement for which consent was granted or denied.

Type

unicode

source

The source where consent was decided. This is free-form text, and may represent a URL, API endpoint, or include other additional source-identifying information.

Type

unicode

timestamp

The date/time when the consent was decided.

Type

datetime.datetime

classmethod parse_audit_info(requirement_id, data)[source]

Parse stored audit information.

This data may come from the database or another tracking store.

Parameters
  • requirement_id (unicode) – The ID of a ConsentRequirement for which consent was granted or denied.

  • data (dict) – The deserialized data to parse.

Returns

The resulting consent data from the audit log.

Return type

ConsentData

serialize_audit_info(identifier)[source]

Serialize the consent data for audit tracking.

Parameters

identifier (unicode) – The identifier to store along with the rest of the data, to help identify the data subject at that point in time. This is considered opaque, and is up to the consent tracker.

Returns

Serialized data for the audit log.

Return type

dict

class BaseConsentRequirement[source]

Represents an aspect of the product requiring consent.

For every piece of a product that requires consent (sending data to a tracking service, for instance), a Requirement must be registered in the registry.

This lists information on the requirement, describing it and optionally providing a URL for learning more about it (which may point to a privacy policy).

It also contains helper functions to perform the lookups and generate consent data for this requirement.

The unique ID of the requirement.

name = None[source]

The name of the requirement.

summary = None[source]

A brief summary of the requirement.

intent_description = None[source]

allowed_text = 'Allowed'[source]

block_text = 'Block'[source]

Text to use for the block action.

blocked_text = 'Blocked'[source]

Text to use for when the block action is selected.
