# Legitimate interest validity time

A legitimate interest consent is only valid for a limited amount of time. After that, the consents are ignored and contacts won't be included in communication unless they have another consent to the same subscription type, that is still valid.

How long you can consider a legitimate interest consent to be valid depend on a number of factors. We encourage you to consult your legal advisor to determine if, and for how long, you can rely on legitimate interest consents.

Under Settings / Privacy & GDPR / Consent you can configure how long your legitimate interest consents should be valid for.
