Here are the references:
1) Cass. Civ., Sez. I civil, Sent n. 17278/2018 – related to the Newsletter, e-mail advertising and consent.
2) Cass. Pen. Sez 3 pen, Sent. n. 38882 – concerning the worker’s consent to the installation of a video surveillance system (which) does not release from the responsibility the employer who did not request the appropriate authorization.
