Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)


Where CCTV is used we have identified and documented the potential impact on individuals' privacy and have taken this into account when installing and operating CCTV systems. We regularly review whether CCTV is still the best  security solution. We will clearly inform individuals of our use of CCTV and we only retain recorded CCTV images for long enough to allow for any incident to come to light (e.g. for a theft to be noticed) and to investigate it. We will respond to individuals or organisations requests for copies of their images on our CCTV footage and will seek prompt advice from the Information Commissioner  where there is uncertainty. We securely store CCTV images, limit access to  authorised individuals and regularly check that the CCTV system is working  correctly. We have a nominated individual who is responsible for the operation of the CCTV system.
