  1. Purpose of processing and legal basis:

We use a surveillance system for the purpose of protecting persons and property. The processing is necessary for the purposes of legal interests that we seek as a controller (article 6 par. 1. f GDPR).

  1. Analysis of legal interests

Our legal interest is the need to protect our space and the goods located in it from illegal acts, such as theft. The same applies to the safety of life, physical integrity, health as well as the property of our staff and third parties legally located in the area under surveillance. We only collect image data and limit the takings to areas where we have assessed that there is an increased chance of committing illegal acts e.g. theft, as at the entrances, without focusing on places where the privacy of the persons being photographed may be severely restricted, including their right to respect for personal data.

  1. Recipients

The material that is kept is accessible only by our competent / authorized personnel who is in charge of the security of the office space. This material shall not be passed on to third parties, except in the following cases: (a) to the competent judicial, prosecutorial and police authorities when it contains information necessary for the investigation of a criminal offense involving persons or property of the controller; (b) to the competent judicial, prosecutorial and police authorities when, lawfully, requesting data in the performance of their duties, and (c) to the victim or perpetrator of a criminal offense, in the case of data which may constitute evidence of the act.

  1. Compliance time

We keep the data for fifteen (15) days, after which they are automatically deleted. In case we find an incident during this period, we isolate part of the video and keep it for another (1) month, in order to investigate the incident and initiate legal proceedings to defend our legal interests, while if the incident concerns a Third-Party we will keep the video for up to three (3) more months.

  1. Rights of data subjects

Data subjects have the following rights:

  • Right of access: you have the right to know if we are processing your image and, if applicable, to receive a copy.
  • Restriction right: you have the right to ask us to restrict processing, such as not deleting data that you deem necessary to establish, exercise or support legal claims.
  • Right to object: you have the right to object to the processing.
  • Right to delete: you have the right to request that we delete your data.

You can exercise your rights by sending an e-mail to or a letter to our postal address or by submitting the request to us in person, at the address of the company. To consider a request related to your image, you should tell us approximately when you were within range of the cameras and give us an image of you to help us locate your data and hide the data of third-party images. Alternatively, we give you the opportunity to come to our facilities to show you the images in which you appear. We also point out that the exercise of the right of objection or deletion does not imply the immediate deletion of data or the modification of the processing. In any case, we will answer you in detail as soon as possible, within the deadlines set by the GDPR.
