Personal Data through Video Devices

Personal Data through Video Devices

Following the recent Guidelines 3/2019 on processing of personal data through video devices issued by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), the Hellenic Data Protection Authority (HDPA) issued the Guidelines attached hereto on how data controllers should inform data subjects of the processing of their personal data through CCTV systems according to the GDPR.

The HDPA stresses that data controllers using CCTV systems should provide data subjects with full information on the operation of such systems before data subjects enter the monitored space. In particular, data controllers established in Greece should set information signs referring to an easily accessible thorough information notice which should include all necessary information according to Art. 13 of the GDPR. Το this end, the HDPA provides new templates of information signs as well as of thorough information notice to be adopted by data controllers.

It should be highlighted that data controllers should comply with such new Guidelines no later than two months from the issuing of the Guidelines, i.e. by 10 August 2020 at the latest.
