Remote working information and consent form

My professional body, GHR, has its own recommendations regarding what such a form should include, and I used that as a basis for my own (example below).  I found it very useful to explain that, as well as following Data Protection regulations with my Privacy Notice etc, I’m also following my professional body’s code of ethics in requesting extra information and further consent.
