Response to public consultation on issues relating to the processing of children’s personal data

Technology Ireland welcomes the opportunity to respond this important public consultation on issues relating to the processing of children’s personal data and the rights of children as data subjects under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Technology Ireland acknowledges that data protection law is about everyone’s fundamental right to the protection of their personal data. When personal data is shared with an organisation, the organisation has a duty to comply with certain laws and obligations governing how that data is handled. We acknowledge too, that children enjoy all the same rights as adults over their personal data – data about them is still their personal data and does not belong to anyone else, such as a parent
or guardian.

We hope our responses provide a balanced, considered and proportionate response to the child specific protections attached to the provisions under the GDPR.
