5.2.1-2 Which areas are considered ‘personal areas’ in the case of private use in the personal sphere or in a private circle?


The personal area is considered to be privacy which is worthy of protection. The decisive factor is not the place of the action but rather the personal context. As soon as the action takes place in the public sphere, it no longer falls under the personal area.

  • Example for the personal area: playing music at home, even with the window open and the possibility that other people may hear the music
  • An example of an action that is no longer in the personal area: street music.
