Hmm, I seem to have missed a point about consent versus informing:  
Informing the user happens after the data release. Not before.
Therefore is a mistake is to say that is it not consent, when the user can actually opt out of the transaction.

Yes you are indeed missing a crucial point: when we tal k about consent we actually talk about free and informed consent. It isn't free if the transactiom is (say) required in order to pass an exam.
