3. Analysis of Legitimate Interests

The Company’s legitimate interest consists of the need to protect our premises and the goods that are found therein, as well as the life, physical integrity and health of our personnel and any third party that is located in the video surveillance area from the risk of fire.

The Company collects only visual data and restricts the monitoring to areas where fire and accidents are more likely to occur based on our assessment, without focusing on areas which might present an excessive restriction of the private life of individuals, whose image is captured by the camera (e.g., toilet and changing room area), including their right to respect their personal data.

The CCTV data that is collected is not used for employee supervision and performance monitoring, while the cameras used are not able to move or zoom.

In addition, we inform you that the Company takes the appropriate security measures to ensure the best possible storage of your personal data and the prevention of any accidental loss, misuse, or unauthorised access. Thus, the Company has established procedures in order to be able to comply with its legal obligations in case of personal data breach.
