What you may disclose

If you have a person’s consent, you may typically disclose information about him/her. If the person is a minor, his/her parents must provide consent.

If you do not have consent, you may only disclose harmless data about another person, i.e. something so innocent that one would not normally feel that their privacy was infringed upon.

If you have disclosed something that you thought was permissible and it then turns out that the person does not approve of such disclosure, you must obey his/her wishes. You must remove the information from the internet, unless you can prove that you have a legal basis for not doing so.

This may be, for example, that you have expressed your opinion in a way that is permissible in relation to freedom of speech. But even freedom of speech does not grant you unlimited rights to disclose information. So think carefully in advance. Remember that you can also injure other people with what you write or the information you disclose. Think about your own personal boundaries.

If it is a harmless situation photo, you may typically disclose it without consent.

But you may not disclose it if you know that the people in the photo do not want you to do so.

If there are protests following your disclosure of the photo, you should also listen to them and remove the photo from the internet.
