The video surveillance system has been introduced as a complementary measure aimed at improving the safety of people and property inside and outside the premises and, where necessary, to enable the Data Controller or third parties to enforce their right of defense in civil or criminal proceedings, based on images that can serve as evidence in case of illegal acts.

The data processing is carried out to protect the legitimate interests of the Data Controller.

Data processing methods

Your personal data shall be processed according to principles of fairness, lawfulness, transparency and protection of your privacy and rights.

The images acquired by means of the aforementioned video surveillance system shall be processed exclusively by personnel authorized by the Data Controller to use the systems and, in cases where it is essential for the purposes pursued, to view the recordings.

Possible recipients/categories of recipients of personal data

Without the need for express consent (pursuant to Article 6 letters b) and c) of the GDPR), your data may be disclosed following inspections or audits (if required), to all inspection bodies responsible for audits and controls concerning the correct fulfilment of legal obligations.
