21 Aug CAN IMAGES OF THE PUBLIC ROAD BE CAPTURED WITH VIDEO SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS?
The answer is, it DEPENDS.
• First of all, all administrative permissions must exist for installation.
• Secondly, in order to be able to take captures of video-captured images it must be demonstrated that there is a legitimate basis or reason for such processing (public interest in the case of public bodies, legal obligation, or legitimate interest of company or individual).
• Normally, the legitimate interest in the case of companies or private entities is the purpose of preserving the safety of people and goods, as well as facilities.
• However, IMAGES OF THE PUBLIC ROAD MAY BE CAPTURED to the extent that it is essential and necessary for the aforementioned purpose and so can be therefore demonstrated.[:]
