Today, a video surveillance system must be GDPR compliant. The GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and regulates the use of personal data in the European Union. All public or private organizations processing personal data are concerned.
GDPR best practices in video surveillance
Videoprotection systems filming the public highway and/or places open to the public must imperatively respect measures to protect the privacy of users.
Camera location :
The cameras must be used only for security purposes: to fight against theft, damage, fire, etc. Indeed, it is forbidden to use a video surveillance system to monitor the work of the staff.
Image processing :
The images must only be consulted by the security department or the store management. Moreover, the duration of the conservation of the images is limited in time and must be defined beforehand by the security manager.
Video system signalling :
Once an establishment is under video surveillance, it is mandatory to inform the users through permanent signs.
