A recital is a statement of facts or reasons that explain why a law or contract exists. Sometimes called a ‘whereas’ or ‘preamble’ clause, it provides context information.
In the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Recitals provide additional context to the Articles. For example, GDPR Recital 32 defines “consent,” which is discussed throughout the legislation.
