IT Users have to explictly agree on conditions

Applications that present "I agree" boxes that are already checked will not have any legal value in the latest draft report of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation act.
Users have to take an explicit action to express their agreement.
Looks like a good idea to me.
Another important element in the act is The right to be forgotten. This allows users to remove content they put online earlier.

More elements in the draft...
