Hello, I have a quick question about video surveillance in the workplace. My employer has installed 2 cameras on the area mentioned. No information was given to the employees in advance. When I asked, I got the following answer:
"The video material is not recorded and access is password protected and is only intended to support the fire brigade in the event of a fire alarm"
Is that enough justification?
I would be very happy about a short feedback.
In Article 2 GDPR – Material scope – the first paragraph states that “This Regulation applies to the processing of personal data […] which form part of a filing system or are intended to form part of a filing system”. Thus, if the video feed is not recorded anywhere, this processing of personal data is not subject to GDPR regulation.
