When creating and / or editing a data privacy consent statement for profile photos, the following message will be displayed after clicking on 'Save & Publish':

The statement will take effect on the next login and the option to accept or decline the data privacy consent statement is displayed when users edit their profile photos.

We bring this enhancement so that each employee can make an informed decision about whether to allow their photos to be used for other purposes.

Please be informed DPCS for profile picture cannot be made as a mandatory check since this feature is available as an additional check in or not for users.

You can, however, search for an individual user or multiple users to see who have accepted or declined this statement and when. For that, follow the steps from KBA 3082925 - Data Privacy Statement Audit Report
