I would like to start a conversation about the impact of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on Oral History interviews. Maybe we can learn from each other.
I would like to ask for your thoughts about the impact of the new provisions and requirements pertaining to the processing of personal data of individuals on our work.
Did anyone update their consent forms to make them compliant with the GDPR? What had to be changed or added specifically?
What has to be considered when an online published Oral History interview contains names of third parties (e.g. the names of family members or acquaintances of interviewees)?
We had a case, in which the son of an interviewee, asked us to remove the transcribed testimony of his father from the internet, because his name was mentioned and also indexed. He referred to the new GDPR. We took the interview out of the www, although the interviewee agreed to the publication of his testimony in the 1990ies
Looking forward to your input
