Italy’s DPA releases guide for privacy in schools

From photos taken at school plays to the use of smartphones in class, from video surveillance to the electronic register, from school registrations to the rankings of teachers and school staff. The new version of the “Privacy-proof School” handbook addresses issues related to the processing of personal data in educational institutions.


The aim of the new guide is to offer educational institutions, families, students and teachers an agile tool to ensure the broadest protection of the data of people who grow up, study and work in the school world.

The handbook is available on the thematic page of the Guarantor’s website dedicated to the world of schools (
