Videos and names

Hi there Dejan,

I just have a quick question. I recorded videos of my zoom teaching and I always had verbal consent of my students, since the video only shows me, nobody or nothing else. I do say the first name of my students though, when I correct them. Now since I am teaching a lot less online again I have been asked to put up a youtube channel. I initially didn't think I would ever use the recordings to more than just for my own analyzing process. But now I was wondering, is it a data right conflict if I say people's first name in the videos and would upload them publicly? They do not talk and most of them I could probably contact and ask if they're ok with it. Just in case I miss a name somewhere of someone I didn't ask, and I repeat I did never mention the last name nor are they seen anywhere, nor do I say anything but a correction to them, would this be considered a violation of data/personal rights already?
Thank you so much in advance. I am sure you usually have other clients. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.

EU GDPR requires the data controller when processing personal data (i.e., the names of participants to a Zoom lesson) to inform the data subjects about the use of personal data. If the data controller aims to modify and add some further use (i.e., publishing the video on Youtube) it shall inform the data subjects and require their consent. Of course, it is needed to have consent from the students mentioned.Another solution can be to anonymize the video by editing the lesson and removing the name of the student. In that case, being only your voice the video may be published.

Here you can find more information about consent:
