Minors' data protection between e-learning and social network platforms

Chiara Sartoris


The paper analyses the impact of Internet on minors' privacy right. It focuses on two aspects. On the one hand, the health emergency of the last few months has imposed schools to provide smart lessons, which, however, pose new problems of data protection. On the other hand, more complex issues are involved when minors use social networks. Thus, it is essential to determine which role parents have and in which extent minors are able to express their consent. The purpose of the paper is to show the new emerging challenges in this field, overcoming some difficulties of coordination between the Italian law and the E.U. framework, in order to assure an effective protection to minors in the digital environment.
