A Guide to Handling Images and Videos in Accordance with Data Protection Regulations
White paper

Effective storytelling ethics extend beyond mere legal concerns. However, for many organizations, the question of the legal basis for handling images and videos remains crucial.

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has brought about significant changes to data protection within the EU. Furthermore, the upcoming data protection law set to take effect in Switzerland on September 1, 2023, has generated several inquiries. Regarding images, what constitutes personal and sensitive data, and what are the implications of these distinctions for organizations in practice?

To provide valuable guidance, Fairpicture has collaborated with the renowned Austrian data protection research institute, the "Research Institute" in Vienna. Together, they have consolidated several critical points in a white paper that is accessible for download. For readers with time constraints, an abridged version offers initial pointers. These resources meticulously adhere to the applicable legal texts and upcoming regulations, providing an exclusively legal perspective on complex issues.


Should the lecture raise any questions, we are pleased to address them during a panel discussion centered around the white paper on October 12, 13:00. This will be followed by an open Q&A session. The panelists include:

  • Dr. Christoph Tschohl, Research Institute
  • Noah Arnold, Fairpicture
  • More speakers tba

The discussion will be moderated by Ulla Ebner and will be conducted solely in German.
