My friend works in a nightclub, she was asked by her boss to download 15 hrs (3 cameras @ 5hrs each) of CCTV footage and post to a customer - the customers bag went missing, it was so she could view to see if she could identify who took her bag.

 

My friend feels because of data protection she should not have sent this footage - none of the footage was obscured.

 

Her boss asked her to do it but she fears repercussions.

 

What is the law re CCTV and what could happen to my friend or her boss?

if he is the data controller with regard to the act then its his problem.

If by obscured you mean peoples faces, what would be the use in that as they are trying to identify a thief.

 

And as above. Its the data controllers problem.

sgtbush, thanks for your reply. I only mention "obscured" as I think if you request cctv of yourself they have to obscure others ? I appreciate this is different, what if any are the repercussions to the boss (data controller) for releasing the footage which they now have no control over?

The jacket incident happened to me and the cctv incident happened to a friend, I have limited knowledge of the law and was hoping for advice. Not sure what to make of your laughing emoji - if my post amuses you then I am happy for you!

Well on a bit of research the cctv footage can be sent under a sar request costing the person £10 and they have to prove identity and everyone else needs to be pixelated.

Only unpixalated footage can be obtained under a court order.

The police can get it under RIPA act 2000.

 

Penalties for the data controller could be

 

Monetary penalty notices: Fines of up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the DPA.

z Prosecutions: Including possible prison sentences for deliberately breaching the DPA.

z Undertakings: Organisations have to commit to a particular course of action to improve their compliance and avoid further action from the ICO.

Limited to the A-level syllabus?

Moot point really, academic attainment may demonstrate ability and my questions may be simple in context, regardless of this I would hope and expect an appropriate response.

Limiting the forum to the post A level syllabus would seem a touch elitist and the ordinary, uneducated man and woman could remain helpless if they felt a public plea for assistance was being mocked.

I'm not mocking it simply pointing out the similarities..

No, pleas for assistance with real problems should receive real world advice, not “A-level question answers”.

Yet, lazy student’s homework shouldn’t be answered.

 

These aren’t mutually exclusive.

 

My point remains ; A poster has highlighted how 2 of your posts match ones set on the A-level course. You noted your knowledge of the law was limited. I asked if that limitation was “limited to the A-level syllabus”.

A question you haven’t actually answered ....

I am unaware of the A-level course and would say my "situations" regarding the syllabus is pure coincidence,

my level is that of a lay person so to say is this at the same level as the A-level syllabus, my answer is I don't know.

 

I have been researching the topic but would welcome input from others who may have a viewpoint regarding the law.
