Dignified storytelling respects and strictly follows existing national or regional laws and regulations on storing and publishing stories. Organisations and storytellers often work with lawyers, particularly if working across several regions or countries to ensure they are adhering all relevant legal requirements.


When consent for a story is granted, it is reasonable that there is a time limit or expiry date on the consent, which needs to be agreed upon by all parties. Evidence of consent and other personal information must be stored securely, and information about people should not be kept for longer than is necessary for the purpose it was collected.
