Please advise, what is the meaning of opt-out boxes? Unticked boxes? Boxes to tick that I do not agree?

Implied consent may no longer be sufficient (e.g., opt-out boxes)
- Silence, not responding to a request
- Pre-ticked boxes

    An opt-out box is what you thing: a box to tick that you do not agree with whatever is being suggested, i.e. you opt out of their offer. It's an "I don't agree with what you want to do" box.
