1.2 We have installed CCTV to:
(a) prevent and detect crimes;
(b) identify, apprehend and prosecute offenders;
(c) dealing with any queries, complaints or enquiries;
(d) ensure the security of our and your property and that of our clients and contractors;
(e) ensure that our policies and procedures are being adhered to;
(f) to assist in any investigations or any disciplinary or grievance issue;
(g) monitor the security of our premises;
(h) monitor adherence to health and safety provisions and policies.
As well as being the purposes for which we use your personal information, all of the above are also legitimate reasons for us to use and store personal data
Images captured by CCTV may be monitored and recorded and kept for up to thirty days after the recording was made. After this time to recording stored on the hard drive of our CCTV system will usually be overwritten.

1.4 All CCTV is maintained and overseen by our DPO. They are responsible for carrying out compliance audits and reviewing the need for CCTV.
1.5 Where we capture your personal data using CCTV we will let you know by using signage explaining who to contact about the CCTV and where to find the relevant privacy notice.

We will first give you the opportunity to view the recordings that have been identified. We may be able to supply you with a copy of the recording unless that isn’t technically possible or to do so puts us to disproportionate effort.
