Based on the initial survey of the GDPR4CHLDRN – ensuring data protection in hobbies project, people have questions about the processing of children’s health data, especially data on allergies, in hobby activities. This article is meant to provide some guidelines for the appropriate processing of children’s health data in hobby activities.
Many organisations are working to improve children’s awareness of personal data processing and data protection legislation. For this GDPR4CHLDRN blog post, we compiled some useful websites we have come across during the project. These sites offer teaching, guidance and independent study materials for promoting data protection awareness in children and young people.
Everyone, regardless of age, has the right to the protection of personal data concerning him or her and everyone has the right to their own personal data. Minors can exercise their data protection rights themselves, but their custodians may also have the right to exercise these rights on behalf of their child. In this article, we tell you when a custodian is permitted to exercise data protection rights on behalf of their child and when this is not possible. What does the controller have to consider before disclosing a minor’s personal data to their custodian?
Children do not pick up data protection awareness and skills by themselves. In addition to early childhood education and care, schools and other entities that deal with and serve children, parents also have a major role in building awareness and competence in their children.
The initial survey for the GDPR4CHLDRN – Ensuring data protection in hobbies project was carried out in November and December 2022. The survey charted the data protection competence and attitudes to personal data processing of children and young people aged 13–17, their parents and the clubs and associations that organise leisure and hobby activities. The survey also sought to identify the data protection issues for which the target groups especially wanted support from the project.
