Abstract

Significant numbers of parents now share information and photographs of their children online. In September 2016 it was reported that an Austrian girl had sued her parents for violating her right to privacy because they refused to remove hundreds of childhood images that they had shared on their Facebook pages. This article considers how a similar action might be resolved before the English courts, analysing whether, using the Data Protection Act 1998, the duty of confidence or the tort of misuse of private information, a child might succeed in removing their images from their parent’s Facebook page.
