OCO Submission on processing children’s personal data and their rights as data subjects under GDPR

In December 2018, the Data Protection Commission (DPC) launched a public consultation on the processing of children’s personal data and the rights of children as data subjects under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In January 2019, the DPC launched a second stream of this consultation, focused on facilitating children and young people to share their views on issues concerning their personal data and their rights as data subjects.

The overall aim of this submission, which focuses on several issues raised by the DPC in its public consultation document, is to offer a view on how certain provisions of the GDPR can be implemented in a manner that is consistent with children’s rights.
