Our use of Closed Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV)
High Definition CCTV cameras are located in various locations around the Heritage Centre with CCTV Signs posted in prominent positions. Our use of CCTV is registered with the ICO (Reference: Z6101675) and its operation complies with their guidance.
CCTV is used for maintaining the security of property and premises and for preventing and investigating crime, it may also be used to monitor staff when carrying out work duties. For these reasons the information processed may include visual images, personal appearance and behaviours. This information may be about staff, customers and clients, offenders and suspected offenders, members of the public and those inside, entering or in the immediate vicinity of the area under surveillance. Where necessary or required this information is shared with the data subjects themselves, employees and agents, services providers, police forces, security organisations and persons making a legitimate enquiry.
Under normal circumstances video could be retained for up to 30 calendar days after which point it will be deleted. Imagery required for investigative or evidential purposes may be retained beyond 30 days and is securely disposed of upon completion/conclusion of the purpose for which it has been retained. Imagery is retained in a secure environment and is only accessible by authorised personnel who have a legitimate reason to do so. No audio recordings are made.
