If you want to keep certain information about your private life out of the public eye, you have to make sure that you don’t make it public yourself.

Sharing information

example If you have made details about your private life public in a number of interviews, you cannot expect that your private life will be protected to the same extent as someone who didn’t.

This is especially true if you have made your private information available on the internet. For example, by sharing it via social media or posting it on a blog. Due to the fact that information on the internet can be copied and passed on very easily, it is generally very difficult to remove it later, especially on social media, which is often partly private, partly public.

Re-publishing information

However, this also doesn’t mean that information you have shared yourself can be re-published without any restrictions.

example If you have published pictures of your birthday party on a social network, like Facebook or Draugiem.lv, you cannot expect that these details will be treated as fully private. However, depending on the number of persons to whom you have granted access to your social network account, you may still be able to challenge the dissemination of these pictures by other persons in court.
