(121) The processing of personal data solely for journalistic purposes, or for the purposes of artistic or literary expression should qualify for exemption from the requirements of certain provisions of this Regulation(121) Whenever necessary, exemptions or derogations from the requirements of certain provisions of this Regulation for the processing of personal data should be possible in order to reconcile the right to the protection of personal data with the right to freedom of expression, and notably the right to receive and impart information, as guaranteed in particular by Article 11 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. This should apply in particular to processing of personal data in the audiovisual field and in news archives and press libraries. In accordance with the Protocol on the system of public broadcasting in the Member States annexed Treaty on European Union, the Treaties establishing the European Communities and certain related acts, the competence of Member States to define and organize Public Service Broadcasting shall also be respected in the field of data protection. Therefore, Member States should adopt legislative measures, which should lay down exemptions and derogations which are necessary for the purpose of balancing these fundamental rights. Such exemptions and derogations should be adopted by the Member States on general principles, on the rights of the data subject, on controller and processor, on the transfer of data to third countries or international organisations, on the independent supervisory authorities and on co-operation and consistency. This should not, however, lead Member States to lay down exemptions from the other provisions of this Regulation. In order to take account of the importance of the right to freedom of expression in every democratic society, it is necessary to interpret notions relating to that freedom, such as journalism, broadly. Therefore, Member States should classify activities as ‘journalistic’ for the purpose of the exemptions and derogations to be laid down under this Regulation if the object of these activities is the disclosure to the public of information, opinions or ideas, irrespective of the medium which is used to transmit them. They should not be limited to media undertakings and may be undertaken for profit-making or for non- profit making purposes.

The controller shall make reasonable efforts to obtain verifiable consent, taking into consideration available technology. The methods to obtain verifiable consent shall not lead to the further processing of personal data which would otherwise not be necessary.
 
2a. Paragraph 1 shall not apply where the information society services offered directly to a child are solely preventive or counselling services for young people in difficult situations.
 
5a. In case of a child, profiling shall never be allowed, regardless of a possible consent given by the child's parent or legal representative.
