We have new material available for drone professionals and drone manufacturers in Europe:

Privacy Code of Conduct

This document is a practical guide to privacy and data protection requirements for drone operators and pilots. It is intended to help guide the activities of drone operators and drone pilots as they carry out professional commercial activities using drones. The Code can help companies plan their activities and establish a formalised set of rules for the conduct of their employees so as to minimise their impact on the privacy of individuals and to facilitate compliance with the requirements set out by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) Template

A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a risk management procedure that is required in  rticle 35 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) whenever personal data is processed and when such processing is “likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons”. To counterbalance processing that may present high risks to data subjects (people whose personal data is processed), a DPIA is a tool that allows you to critically examine a data processing activity and to assess it against data protection principles and legal requirements.


Pre-Flight Checklist

This pre-flight checklist is intended as a check for privacy and data protection questions relevant to drone pilots before a drone takes flight. This checklist is intended as an easy-to-consult  document for pilots “on the go”.


Privacy-by-Design Guide

This privacy by design guide is aimed at drone manufacturers and it is intended to help them incorporate privacy into the process of designing and building drones. The guide:

• will introduce you to the fundamental privacy by design principles

• will guide you through applying them in practice by providing you with a questionnaire to help you assess privacy risks and identify appropriate safeguards, and

• will provide you with an overview of the privacy risks which different drone features can give rise to, readily proposing potential solutions.
