    The Federal Review Board for Media Harmful to Minors published a brochure which provides information on the statutory provisions on the protection of minors and gives an overview of the indexing procedure, the individual facts of the youth risk and the legal consequences resulting from the indexation.

    Copyright - Publishing images and photos

    For many ECEC centres today it is common to make their centres and pedagogical work publicly visible. In addition to articles in the local or regional newspapers, there is often a website on which photos of children, employees and projects are published. Therefore, as with print products, a declaration of consent should be obtained from the person depicted or the parent or guardian (for children under the age of 12).

    Be sure to discuss with parents the publication of photos showing children and/or their families.
