GDPR Doesn't Ban People From Taking Pictures Of Kids In Public

Share this article


There's nothing under GDPR that bans people from taking photos of others in a public place, according to the Data Protection Commission.

It comes after reports of schools banning photos at events like communions and school plays because of GDPR.

The DPC has had to issue new guidelines to clear up confusion over the issue.

It says taking photos of loved ones falls under the 'household exemption', where photos are taken for personal use.

Graham Doyle from the Data Protection Commission says: 'So provided you're not harassing anyone, taking photos of people in public is generally allowed, but it's to do with the publishing of the photos then. There is a recital of GDPR and it actually states that the household activity can include social networking aswell so there is potential provision there for allowing uploading to social media'.
