Spain: AEPD and Psychology Council sign protocol to jointly promote measures protecting mental health on the internet

The Spanish data protection authority ('AEPD') and the General Council of Psychology ('COP') signed a general protocol of action, establishing that the AEPD and the COP will cooperate in carrying out dissemination, awareness-raising, and training activities aimed at promoting the material, tools, and resources of the AEPD related to privacy and personal data protection. In particular, the protocol seeks to increase the effectiveness of measures to protect affected individuals in the event that personal data has been illegally obtained, especially in cases of digital violence against women, minors, and other vulnerable groups.

More specifically, the AEPD detailed that, via its Priority Channel, individuals can denounce and request the removal of photographs, videos, or audio of especially sensitive nature that are published on the internet without the individuals' consent, thereby seriously harming their mental health.

You can read the press release here and access the Priority Channel here, both only available in Spanish.
