The issue in GetHuman2234259's own words
Tried to report multiple videos for privacy infringement because they show me and other young girls, all aged between ** and ** in said videos, dancing in what was meant to be a safe environment. Uploader has posted this footage of us without our consent or the consent of our legal guardians, and upon trying to report the privacy violation, I got an email from youtube less than a minute later saying no guideline has been violated, but they can't have even reviewed the videos in that space of time. We are all clearly identifiable as the footage shows us all in detail, and as the name of our dance school and the name of the town is visible on the clothes that some girls wear, we are all uncomfortable with this footage being uploaded on youtube by someone we don't know to be easily accessed by anyone. Not sure if it counts as copyright infringement as well, because the channel that posted the footage put different sound over the top of the original videos. Again, all the girls in the videos are underage, the eldest is ** one of the videos but is only ** in the other. I think posting videos of young girls without the consent of the individuals or of their legal guardians has got to be breaking some rules, it's absolutely disgusting. The channel in question also has videos on their channel of very young children, about * or *, and due to the nature of our privacy being violated, I very much doubt that these children or their parents are even aware of the fact that this person is publishing footage where these children are easily identifiable. We were made aware of the channel through a friend who was watching random videos and recognised us. We were not made aware by the uploader that they would be using our images and we are not aware of who the person is.
