If everyone who appears in the video or photographs agrees to it, the images can be provided without restriction. We provide redaction services to our members only at a reduced rate.
Data Protection Impact Assessments
Under GDPR, DPIA’s are mandatory for any new high risk processing projects. The DPIA process will allow you to make informed decisions about the acceptability of data protection risks, and communicate effectively with the individuals affected. It is important to highlight that not all risks will be eliminated but a DPIA can allow you to identify and mitigate against data protection risks, plan for the implementation of any solutions to those risks and assess the viability of a project at an early stage. Good record keeping during the DPIA process can allow you to demonstrate compliance with GDPR and minimise risk of a new project creating legal difficulties.

Protecting your privacy and your public image from slander and libel is only one side of the coin; Ensure that your processes are robust regards how your CCTV systems are used and utilised.
